So it seems that the roosters really were captured the other night--well, the loudest one, anyway. So while some still roam free and greet the morning, Mr. 4:45 a.m. is gone.
Also, on an interesting note, a new family moved into the rooster house. Unfortunately for them, they moved in during a power-outage at night, so it was a dark move-in. Not sure how they feel about the chicken guests that congregate every evening (I hear them gathering now) in their yard or their backyard alarm clock.
I'm sleeping better with the loud rooster gone, the runner-up is still bothering Owen because he is not using ear plugs.
