He crows like a dog barks: at strangers walking by, at me pulling out of the driveway, at me pulling into the driveway, at me if he sees me and I haven't let him out to free-range, and at any point that he wants attention. The problem: He also starts crowing very early (5:30am? maybe sooner) and when I go to look, he looks half asleep. 1. Is my rooster crowing in his sleep? 2. He is 5 months old. Will he start crowing less as he matures? 3. Why does he crow non-stop from 5:30am - 7:30am 4. Is there anything I can do to keep him silenced during the sleeping hours? I understand that he is going to crow. I'm okay with that. It's the before daylight crowing that is the problem. The sun doesn't rise until after 7am.
