A Peaceful Wake-Up Call
Roosters have an instinct to crow. The urge comes naturally. But this doesn’t mean they’re naturally good at it.
If you’ve never heard one, a young rooster sounds like it’s being strangled when it tries to crow. It takes a number of weeks, if not months, to actually make a recognizable sound. And until then they just sound like morons.
And roosters don’t just crow a few times when the sun comes up. No, they just crow nonstop. It’s a stream of noise. And more hilariously, they have to take a big gasp of air after each big crow. So it’s less “Cock-a-doodle-doo!”, and more “COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO *GAAAASSSPP* COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO *GAAAASSSPP* COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO *GAAAAAAASSSSSSSPP*” on an endless loop until they die.
