🎶Greeeeeeeeen Acres We Are There🎶

Aaah country life. No traffic. No crime. Neighbors gather for pot luck suppers. No complaints.

Until one neighbor gets a rooster!!

Alllllllllll night and nonstop alllllllllllll this morning the damn rooster has been crowing. Doesn’t he get hoarse?

The rooster I hear near me, not sure which neighbor, sounds more like a sick goat than a crow but if it were a sick animal I think someone would have called animal control.

Granted it’s not a loud barking dog but I gotta say, the crowing has gotten under my skin. Maybe you chicken owners can tell me if the constant rooster crowing is normal. I thought it was a morning thing, a wake up call. What would make a rooster crow all day?

On the bright side, I guess I have a neighbor from whom I can buy fresh eggs.

  1. That neighbor should be GIVING you those eggs. Hell, that neighbor should be making you omelettes!

    1. I’ve heard tales of woe from suburban families where a neighbor gets the obligatory chicken coop but I’m pretty damn rural and it still bothers me. I haven’t decided if I’m bothered by the crowing because I’m old and am being a cranky pants or if it’s annoying for everyone listening to it.

  2. Probably a young rooster if he’s warbly and croaky. They practice a lot when young and he will quiet down a bit as he settles into his voice. I personally love roosters and the sound of their crows! They have wonderful personalities!

    1. I would have said the same thing “that I love roosters and the sound of their crows”.. until last night.

  3. …a neighbor from whom I can buy fresh eggs.

    Not unless this guy has distaff company. And if he doesn’t, maybe that’s why the poor feller spends the whole day crowing: he’s lonely in his cage aux fowl!

    1. Very funny, and very good point!!

      I ran into another neighbor at Shoprite this morning and she said “are you hearing the rooster”? Oh yes, yes I am!
