Why does the rooster crow?

I know why the caged bird sings. But why does the rooster crow all day? Is there anything to keep the rooster from crowing? I would like to enjoy my back yard. I would love to garden without hearing my neighbor’s rooster. It seems to crow whenever I open the door or move. It is an excessive amount of noise, which is saying something because I have noisy children. Three loud, energetic children.
My youngest daughter, who we refer to as the rooster, woke up the real rooster by playing her toy flute. It may have been the best $5 that anyone ever spent. It still makes me laugh to think of my little rooster waking up the rooster. Is it wrong to laugh? Maybe.
In the scheme of things, I realize that I am lucky to live somewhere where the biggest complaint is the rooster. Apparently, roosters can crow all day. I also think that my neighbor might have two roosters. Or a hen that echoes the rooster. I’m hoping that his barn is not going to be a safe haven for orphaned roosters. If that happens, we might be moving to a rooster-free zone. 🙂


  1. I stayed in Euthera, Bahamas and there were more roosters than people. I had many evil thoughts and wondered if they taste as good as the hens. ……only one way to find out.

      1. It’s actually easy. I have done it in the past with a chicken…I quickly learned that I prefer The Grocery Store !
