    Well for the past 18 weeks I have said one time or another that I guess my ee rooster will never crow... Well at 3:30 this morning he decided he has waited long enough and belted out several loud crows..

    Then at 6:30 he decided to do the same...

    I'm glad that he started crowing... but why couldn't he wait till about, oh... 8:00 am..lol [​IMG]

    Loudmouth, finally can be called Loudmouth. Here he is a couple of weeks ago.

    Unfortunately no one's ever figured out how to put a timer in a rooster. They crow when they want to crow and that's about it.

    [​IMG] I love hearing them crow! My first two crowed all through the night, now I have a nice EE that I rarely hear. I kind of miss it!

    8:00 AM that's funny! [​IMG] Mine start at about 6:30 right now. In summer, it's usually 5:00. They are the natural alarm clocks!

    I do agree though, 3AM is a wee bit too early.

    My sister had to give up her rooster because of crowing.

    The chickens weren't locked up in a coop at night, just put into the old dog run. Everynight the neighbor got up at 2 am to use the bathroom and would turn on the light. The dumb rooster would start crowing.

    Not to mention, I have 3 more out of my 11 that I hatched out 3 weeks ago that I know are Roosters.. LOL!!!!
