    I have a Rhode Island Red rooster that is 9 months old crowing at 10:00 pm, 3:00 am and of course at day break I can count on it crowing at those times. Is that normal?

    Ok I wasn't sure. I am glad I have no neighbors. He starts crowing then the others would follow.

    Very normal.

    My rooster will crow at daybreak and at dusk.

    He will also crow if he hears another rooster, if he hears my Hubby coming home in the Landrover, if new people visit the property, or if he sees my cat!

    Mine crow at all hours. The rooster in the pen beside the house crows when i go outside, when i come home, when Mike comes home, when the neighbor's dog barks, he answers the other roosters, if anyone comes to the gate, when the neighbor's come home....... In other words, he crows whenever he wants to, just because he can! That's what roosters do :)

    Lol!

    I have two roos right now. They crow whenever they feel like it. Early morning, mid morning, afternoon, evening, middle of the night...

    I love them and live FAR out in the middle of nowhere, so it's not a problem, but I know it could be for some.

    Awesome!

    I have a Cuckoo Marans roo who sounds like he has a 3 pack a day habit and I have a SS hamburg roo who is a Soprano. Too funny to hear them crowing back and forth...

    I miss my roosters. They all died from one thing or another. They were all accidental, but I really loved hearing them crow. Enjoy your roosters while you have them.
