    I have no idea what is wrong with my rooster but he has been crowing since 3:30 this morning!! I keep running outside to make sure there aren't any predators around....not that they could get into the coop...and nothing. He won't quiet down!!

    Some of them just do that, they crow all day or all night or just sometimes.....It just depends on the rooster [​IMG]

    Did you check inside the coop? I used to have a crazy rooster who would crow nonstop if anything was wrong. Anything at all. The thing that springs to my mind was an egg laid in the run. That insane bird did not shut up until I came and collected the egg.

    Sorry about your sleepless night. [​IMG]

    I wish I could say it was a sleepless night but I'm up at 3:30 every single morning no matter what! I haven't checked the coop yet...was trying to look around in the dark...but I will have to run out and see. Thanks for the help, thought I was doing something wrong! [​IMG]

    Nope, they're just bonkers sometimes [​IMG] Mine have started up a 5-6 am hour long chorus back and forth [​IMG] Absolutely no good reason, just making sure everyone within a mile radius knows they're boys [​IMG] On the bright side, it gets me up and moving and during the summer it is the nicest time to be working outside before it gets hot - maybe I should thank them instead of wanting to bop them in the head LOL!

    lauralou - that is HILARIOUS about the egg!! Apparently quite bothersome to him that it was out of place [​IMG]
