There is a rooster down the street and he just will not stop yelling lol. I ussually cant hear him because he lives about 2 blocks away but today I keep hearing him. Maybe he got loose? Do you have roosters in your area? Would you keep a pet rooster if you could?

I love to hear roosters crow! There aren't any here (chickens not allowed in the city limits), but I'd love it if there were. I wouldn't have a "pet" rooster, but I'd have one along with some laying hens if I could.

That must be driving you crazy. We don't have any roosters in our area. No, I would never keep a rooster either. I'd probably go crazy.

I can understand how annoying this could be especially very early in the morning. We live in a heavily populated area in the city so nobody has a rooster. I wouldn't want to own a rooster. Wouldn't be my pet choice. Some neighbors have dogs but only one neighbor has a dog who is exceptionally noisey and drives me wild at times. They put it outside and all it does is bark. They are home and just don't bother to bring it in the house unless it's been yapping for an hour or so. Other neighbors are also very annoyed.

Wow! I haven't heard a rooster crow for years. Nobody seems to keep chickens these days. When I grew up we had a chicken coop in the garden - it was quite a large garden, and I remember many in our neighbourhood had chickens too. So I would not hear just one rooster, but several. They were good alarms clocks I suppose. - Derek

We have one about two doors down, and when we have the windows open in the summer he is the first thing that we here, he is our alarm clock in the summer. Our neighbors across the street are about 50 cows, so we got the rooster and a whole lot of mooing. Plus we have a horse farm near by, and people are always riding down the street on them. as you can probably tell i live in farm country, and i love all the different animal sounds it can be real peaceful compared to the city life. If things get any worst we might just add a few chickens and a rooster and a couple of milk cows to our family someday.

cute rooster - [b]KENNY ROGERS ROASTERS[/b]..~.. LOL! when you said"roosters", my mind straight away focus on Kenny Rogers Roasters. My faves spring chicken outlet near my living area. OK~ back to your discussion, yeah! there are roosters but not so close to my house and very rare crossed by my house. I don't know who are the owners.[b]Hopes none[/b] of my neighbors got roosters, as it can freely encroach to others house compound, make some dirty works and disturbance. But, if I live in one nice village with huge house compound area, that's fine. I love to have roosters as many as I could.

LOL! rooster nowadays is yelling at anytime without making sure whether it's a daytime or night time! there's one at my area too, yelling at around 9:30pm daily. i can't stand him truly because when he starts yelling it would last at least for another 30 minutes. after 5 minutes break, he would continue again & again... yes, i will keep a pet rooster if i could, but not for the purpose of waking me up in the morning because i don't think he knows the time better than human. LOL! i will keep a pet rooster in order for me to make some nice fried chicken when i'm hungry in the weekends...
