The rooster likes to be noticed and flattered. He might dress a little flashily with this in mind, but in his heart, he is completely conservative. Roosters always appear attractive and beautifully turned out. They are sociable and love to receive attention.
Ohh, OOHH, we do have some baby roosters that need good homes - August 2010 -
We've had some hearty chickens being born and that includes some baby roosters. I'll post some pictures, but they are free to a good home. If you want a hen to start your own family then I'll take $10 for the pair. The chickens are about 5 months old right now so in another 2 months you'll have fresh eggs...and next year you may have your own flock/babies. Please call 775-677-4307 for more info RIGHT NOW!
"I would like to know why rooster's crow at 3:00am? It wakes up the neighborhood. Please help me, because my husband is going to kill it!" - anonymous
Some of the research that I've found on this subject suggested that ornithologists believe crowing marks out territory, like the way a male dog will "mark" his territory by peeing. Rooster's are just noisier and easier to clean up after. It's like the Rooster is saying: "This is my Haven, leave me alone and DON'T touch my women"
In Jamaica a person said that the rooster crows every hour, on the hour. Now this sounds ridiculous buy when they checked it out it was true. Well, sometimes it would crow 20 minutes after the hour, but exactly an hour later. Each night it would be about 5 minutes later then the night before, but always an hour between crows. (OK, so who was up all night doing this research? and were they paid for it? In Jamaica of all places!)
There could be some other phenomenon that occurs regularly to trigger a CROW. For instance if a big truck goes by, the Rooster may interpret that as an intrusion to his Haven, and it wakes him up - and he crows.
Feldman quotes Janet Hinshaw of the Wilson Ornithological Society: "Most of the crowing takes place in (early) morning, as does most singing, because that is when the birds are most active, and most of the territorial advertising takes place then. Many of the other vocalizations heard throughout the day are for other types of communication, including flocking calls, which serve to keep members of the flock together and in touch if they are out of sight from one another."
