I have never had a roo before. So now, my 8 month old BO roo has finally come into his own and is crowing alot. I don't mind it, I can't hear it from inside the house if he's in the coop but.... I got a baby monitor on the suggestion of a local and I turn it on at night to monitor the coop and any unusual activity/noise. Works well. Recently, I have been woken in the morning by a cock-a-doodle-doo. This has been as early as 4:30 AM. I am central time so it starts getting light at maybe 530 but 430 REALLY???? My concern is that there could be a real reason for this pre-dawn wake up. Or is this a roo being a roo?
