    Hi everyone,

    For the last couple of days, my Banty Rooster has been crowing all day long! He is about 6 months now, why is he doing this?!

    Thanks!

    Because he just discovered his voice and thinks he's pretty cool. He'll slow down, don't worry... I hope...lol!

    there are very many reason one a rooster crows can never rely explain it..

    roosters crow to make their presence felt and to mark their territory

    Roosters also crow when they hear another rooster crowing

    and the list goes on so realy no reason why just because he can..
