    Ok we couldn't wait till our rooster started crowing. Well he started and our question is Do some roosters crow more than others? or do all roosters crow every 15 seconds? [​IMG]

    It depends on the roo. Some roos just love to celebrate their glorious selves more than others! Maybe your's will settle down with a little age and settling of the male hormones.

    My roo started out slow, then he started crowing about every 30 seconds from 3AM to 4PM. Had to rehome him to a nice place where they don't mind it. I am told SOME roos will crow a little less often - hoping to find one someday. [​IMG] I can have roos, but that was a little much!

    I have a Silky roo that is soooo proud of his 'roosterliness' that he crows whenever the mood overtakes him, starting about 4 AM, but he also crows whenever someone pulls in the driveway, which can be helpful, so we call him our 'watchchicken'. He and my Cochin Frizzle roo get going and have a 'crow-off' to see who can crow the best and they could go on forever.

    Our rooster crows a few times in the morning starting around 4:00am and then once in a while during the day and sometimes he will be quiet for a day or two. No telling, but we are in the country and landlord to the neighbors that eat our eggs so it is all good...

    I like it myself, reminds me of times long past [​IMG]
