Donnie one my readers suggested this topic and I thought it would be interesting to consider. If you live in a village or on a farm in America, you may be able to answer this question better than those of us who don’t. What would be the most effective way to wake you up: a rooster or an alarm clock? What’s the advantage of having a rooster wake you up or an alarm clock waking you? When I lived in Laos and in the refugee camps, the “buck” “buck” or “cluck” “cluck” was familiar. I got so used to it that I would be able to fall asleep easily. All that noise was like a lullaby to me. Now that I’m living in a city, there’s no chicken noise or the rooster’s cock-a-doodle-doo to wake me so I rely on the alarm clock on my cell phone to once familiar sound of the rooster to wake me. The funny thing is, the tone or sound I pick to wake me up is a rooster’s cock-a-doodle-doo. Why would I pick this sound as my alarm? Maybe it is more natural and brings back memories of my village days. Since I live in the city, I can’t very well have a rooster in my backyard (the neighbors would probably complain!) to wake me, I use a recorded and fake rooster sound. I am interested in knowing what people use to wake them up: a rooster or an alarm clock or something else?
I found this interesting information:
“A rooster can and will crow at any time of the day. Some roosters are especially vociferous, crowing almost constantly, while others only crow a few times a day” (Wikipedia)
