My roo has been crowing for about a month now. He is pretty loud. I live in a neighborhood where the houses are about 150 yards apart. That's a good thing, but I do worry about complaints. I told my neighbor I was sorry about the rooster's crowing and that I was deciding what to do about him. The neighbor said, "Don't change a thing. I love the sound. And I love the sound of the train going through our valley at night. They are the sounds of our town." He is a good man and it reminds me that stress and annoyance are things we do to ourselves. They are not conditions, but choices. He has chosen to love the sound of my rooster. Blessings.
