    Anybody having this happen? I have heard my roosters start crowing at hight a couple of different times. Is it because of the full moon or something else??

    Our roos do it all the time and we have 17 full grown crowing roosters. It gets pretty melodic sometimes. It is just a vocalization to keep their flock in check. Ours do it during a full moon or no moon. They usually start at 2am for 5 min or less then at around 3:30 for 5 min or less and then start in pretty good about 5am. Some nights they might crow as early as midnight but it is usually about 2 when they start.

    My first rooster, Cinnamon Toast, a Gold-laced Wyandotte (sp?) does not crow particularly at dawn, but crows all day whenever someone comes to the house or I step outside. He seems to crow when he wants attention or sees a person. I am a bit concerned as there is a new housing development close by and wonder if anyone will object.

    In the last five minutes I heard/counted my Partridge Cochin roo crow 16 times and my Blue polish twice. It's 3:03AM here now.

    Mine crowed one night to tattle on me for going out to sneak a cigarette (the beast!). Now, I make sure I don't turn on the porch light to do that. lol
    Sanguine, I have a roo named Toast, too! (he was supposed to be a girl, I taught him tricks and everything. [​IMG] I have no use for a mutt roo, but I love him. Anyone want to caponize him for me, please?) I figure that way, I can keep him.

    LOL!!
    I don't want to caponize him for that (it was the other roo that ratted me out, BTW)
    I want him neutered so I can keep him as a pet.
    Although, that would be a great threat to see if I can get Christian to stop tattling on me.......[​IMG]
    I do love my (illegal) boys.
