Early in our relationship I kept commenting to my fiancee about the roosters I hear when we are on Skype. So much so that she nick named me Rooster

It seems that all of us can hear them too :lol:

I hear you. Michelle's family's neighborhood is rooster heavy too. Including one that lived just outside of the window to my room. I grew up in rural Virginia, it's not a sound that's new to me...but one ten feet away outside of an open window really can't be ignored. I did find it kind of amusing how one would crow, and the rest of them in the vicinity would follow like a wave.

The roosters never bothered me. As a matter of fact we have roosters and hens here in the states. We love the rural life. The goats are more annoying than the roosters here. Two out of the five goats are gone now. Our Filipino friends came over and butchered one in the back yard last week and another one last night. I usually just drink and watch and joke with them. We keep chickens for eggs and when they get too old to lay, our friends come over and butcher them.

We're going to try to get some pigs next spring. Mmmmmm Lechon Baboy!

Well, I'll take a Rooster any day. I have a mosque next to my house, which is cool until the call for morning prayers at 6AM or so and this is on an external loud speaker.

But this is part of the ambience, yes?

Yikes that is rough. I would have to move since the early morning call to prayer would be too much noise for me.
