A Joyful Noiseby La HueritaCartoons and general lore would have you believe that roosters crow at the crack of dawn, when the sun comes up. That's a wretched lie, as anyone who has lived in smaller communities in Mexico can tell you. The foul fowl start crowing HOURS before dawn, in the dead of night, and they never stop.
