    My rooster starts crowing at 3 am in the morning,is this normal.I can understand it at 5:30 because the bathroom window light shines at the coop.

    Yes, it is normal. Roosters will crow at odd noises in the night sometimes, or just because they are bored. They will also answer other roosters if they hear them crowing in the night. There are lots of examples on here of roosters crowing in the wee morning hours.

    I was yelling last night about a football game on TV, I guess I was a little to loud because my rooster started crowing [​IMG] lol He doesn't like loud noises at night but the barking dogs don't seem to bother him any.
