Spring and increasing daylight causes hormones to surge. Spring is the main breeding season for chickens. Generally my roosters don't crow all day long, just on and off. I would assume yours is young?

One of the youngsters has developed a bad habit of doing his version of the hen song oftentimes. He'll yells out at the top of his lungs about every 5 seconds for interminably long stretches. He may not last much longer if he keeps that up.

Some do get overzealous trying to be a rooster. I usually end up making rooster decisions in spring when their obnoxious behaviors come out.

I have 4 crowing roosters, they compete with each other, whoever can blast the most crows out in a row is the winner, then the game starts over. The king of the coop can crow 5 or 6 time within a minute, others usually go 4 or 5, they compete like this almost all day! I have noticed more crowing in the spring to, most times my king roo only corw once or twice a day, right now he is crowing multiple times an hour. My neighbors used to have a rooster across the street and whenever he would crow my boy would crow back, then the other roo would crow back and they would go back and forth for hours.
