    I was laying in bed this morning at 6:25, just figuring out if I want to get up or try to sleep-in some more. I heard my kids - they got up early and were milling around in the kitchen. I then heard sound like woo-woo-woo very softly. I dismissed it as the kids fooling around. Then I heard footsteps approach the oldest son knocked and said "Daddy, the rooster just crowed". So naturally I jump up and run to the backdoor to watch. He did it again about 10 minutes later.

    He's a Buff Orpington rooster I picked up with a couple of Orp pullets off Craigslist.

    Funny thing is, that when he did it the second and third time, the older Rhode Island Red hens started to give him a hard time, chasing him around the run...
