    My roosters have started crowing in the middle of the night. Why? Is something wrong with them? Or is that a bad omen? [​IMG]

    Is there any lights on in your house? Your rooster may crow because he might think its morning. It happened to my rooster.[​IMG]

    Ok, that is probably why they are crowing.

    My husband is from Puerto Rico and when we visited a few years back the roosters all sang every hour till 8am starting after midnight. I never knew they crowed in the middle of the night. Weird.
