Dear Obnoxious Rooster With No Name

Dear Obnoxious Rooster with No Name,

I do realize it's your job to crow.  And I admire your devotion and tenacity in doing your job.  However, just a few things. 

 Sunrise currently starts at 7:00 am.  Not at 3 am.  Not at 4 am.  Definitely not at 5 am.  Also, I know you like to get up high to crow.  But jumping on the porch railing just outside the twins' bedroom to crow at 5 am is NOT in the list of your job description.  Trust me on this.  And don't flap your wings at me young man!

I can still see you, even hiding behind that post!  You need to move on and find a new place to crow.

Showing your backside is bad manners you know.

That's right, move on.  Note the ineffective chicken wire put up on the porch in an attempt to curtail his ambitious porch crowing sessions....

Kinda reminds me of someone else that has a loud mouth and is very annoying....
Thinking that henceforth rooster with no name may be called Gilbert....

Perhaps its time for some Poulet Marengo, a la Gilbert?

Jill said...

lol! You poor thing. I'd be tempted to strangle the pretty thing. Gilbert is the perfect name for him!

E @ Act Fast Chef said...

LOL! I think that is the perfect name for the rooster!

Happy New Year Lisa.

Thanks for the early morning laugh Lisa :) So funny about Gilbert - I have heard if they crow all night they are trying to 'get their groove on' Do you think the ladies were impressed? :) gloria

P.S. I still have the peppermint joe joes. I promise I will send them to you before next Christmas :)

Kasey said...

From our flock we have one hen and one over-zealous rooster! I understand this post entirely!!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

He should definitely not crow right in front of anyone's room. At least the name you are considering isn't Soup!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

But, it is kinda in his job description. Just sayin'. :)

Melodie said...

I don't know who started the FALSE saying that roosters crow at sun rise! Ours start at about 3 am too..but they are farther from the house thankfully!

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

Haha! Gilbert is a good name for him. At least you didn't think of naming him "Dinner"! ;)

Sally said...

Oh goodness, I know it's not funny but to someone who hasn't experienced this, it kind of is. :)

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Gilbert would be the perfect name for that annoying loudmouth of a rooster! Don't you just want to kill it every morning?

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Oh, that cracked me up--Gilbert the Rooster!

Slamdunk said...

Ha, this puts a damper on the dream of country living that many of us share.

My Journey With Candida said...

lol... I know it isn't funny but that is a really cute post.

My Hubs would take care of him using lead. Pet or not, he would be in our soup pot the next day.

The Incredible Woody said...

Our neighbors have roosters. (They claim that they aren't for fighting but it sure is suspicious to have nothing but roosters....) Anyway, those roosters crow all. The. Time!

TexWisGirl said...

LOL!!! perfect!!!

Myya said...

Haaa Gilbert would be a PERFECT name for an annoying rooster! What an ornery lil thing.

Valerie said...

I think Gilbert is the perfect name for your feathered alarm clock! Cute post, and I must admit, Gilbert is a handsome boy and does have a lot to crow about:)

Sandy said...

Every rooster I had was names Shooster...Shooster the rooster. While I encouraged them to come to the house and crow first thing in the morning TJ wasn't as thrilled with it as I was...lol. We were usually up by 3 am anyhow, and I enjoyed hearing him first thing in the morning. Beautiful rooster!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Rooster does need to learn his timing...Lol

Tiffany said...

Hmmm, some broiled chicken (rooster) with lemon pepper and asparagus sounds really good now. With new potatoes.

He better watch his p's and q's!!

Deborah Ann said...

Haha! That pesky rooster needs to take a hike. Sleep is a top priority! Love the connection to that other annoying critter.

Happy New Year!

Dawn said...

Grrrr. Ooooh I could strangle things that go bump in the night....or crow...or howl....
I can't believe you got up to take pics. I would have done a lot more than just take pictures;))

Out on the prairie said...

Gilbert is a nice name. Another I had thoughtt of was Stew.LOL

Jane said...

Great post,I think the rooster is pretty,or pretty regal. I can only imagine how annoying the crowing is at all hrs of the morning ! Blessings Jane

Debbie said...

haha...but he is cute ;) ;)

Lexie Loo, Lily Boo, and Dylan Too! said...

LOL, I think the name suits him!

Angela said...

He's a pretty rooster though! Is he your only rooster? You don't need them for eggs but you need him for babies.

WhisperingWriter said...

Gilbert is a fabulous name!

That noise would bug me too.

Michaele said...

Many a rooster is minus a head for that very thing. If I sound harsh it's because I have been there. This conversation was delightfully funny though.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That rooster needs an alarm clock --so that he won't crow until daylight... (Even that is too early for me!!!! ha)

BUT--the rooster is pretty and he knows it... Love the way roosters are just so prissy and cocky....

Hugs,
Betsy

Chatty Crone said...

He would do it once and my hubby would take care of it! You have patience. sandie

Tom Stewart said...

Too funny! Is this what I have to look forward to? Hope to get my first chickens this spring.
I wonder if roosters have heard the old saying "A chicken in every pot"

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Oh, that's funny, but doesn't sound fun to deal with! My husband had a very mean rooster as a child--Peebert. :)

Lindsay said...

LOL, oh no!! You're right on the comparison of the rooster and Gilbert! I never did like him...haha.

warren said...

He's so purdy though!

tipper said...

Loved this post-it put a smile on my face : )

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Tee hee hee
We have a silly rooster too!
love
tweedles

Samantha said...

That's the perfect name!
Granted, I don't think your Gilbert will make a mint off his annoying voice.

Jen said...

Hahaha!! Stupid rooster!

OneMommy said...

Stopping by from the Mom Loop! As always, you crack me up! We have a rooster like that around here... but to me it's the neighbors goats that drive me nuts. I always think one of my kids is crying!

Already following you through GFC.

Kim said...

Oh my goodness, you are much kinder than I would be. I would likely consider a rooster relocation program.

Jeremi said...

So funny (for those of us not hearing the rooster doing his thing so early in the morning)!!
