I have BCM that crows every 2 mins non-stop from 4:15am till he falls asleep. Does anyone one else have that problem? And why does he do it?

is he talking to anyone else as in another rooster that may live close by that he can hear? I have been training Marty my FBCM to crow less, well really I have been working with all my roos. when he is outside and crows I scoop him up and tap his beak and say Marty HUSH! if he is mid crow I cover his mouth lol and it sounds all garbled at the end. Then I put him back down. If he crows again I put him inside the coop until he gets it out of his system (usually non stop crowing for about 5-10 minutes) then I let him back outside. I do this with my other roos too. it is tiering but after a few months of that all my roos crow a lot less. Some days they will go from 10am till dusk with maybe 5 crows each through out the day so it was worth it to me as now they are outside 80% of the day


Other than that you may just have a chatty roo.
