You were on the right track since you mentioned animals Farmer John. This is by far the best alarm clock ever devised.

ha ha ha !!! I use to hatch and raise some birds, some became pets, I use to have a large turkey hen that came over every morning for her toast and peck at the door, and I use to have guinea hens, they use to sit on my bedroom window sill 20 or 30 of them , stacked 3 deep, I was always up at dawn but my wife hated the little critters for messing with he beauty sleep, they did make quite the racket

Well, this rooster has a broken beak, but he's eating and drinking just fine. My girlfriend got the chickens from a friend last year and they will most likely die of old age since they are her pets now. The rest live in a heated condo outside and are laying eggs daily.
I was trying to watch a youtube video of a guy thawing his well line, but the guy on the video had chickens and his rooster was crowing. Well the rooster in my living room started crowing when he heard it, and I couldn't hear what the guy was saying. I had to go in another room to listen to the video.

The chickens are basically her pets. She came up with the idea of keeping him in the rabbit cage in the living room overnight, since it was -15 last night. We laughed this morning when he woke us up and I get up at 5am anyway to load the woodstove. I'll tell you what, it's really loud when a rooster crows in the house!

Ahh, I couldn't break the girls heart. She does a great job taking care of those birds every day and really enjoys it. He's in the rabbit cage layered with fresh hay, food,and water and isn't a bother. He'll be going back out to the coop soon, though. I don't want that bird getting too comfortable!
