A confused shopper who constantly noticed a “cock crow” every time she visited Woolworths found that the noise alerted employees that the hot roast chickens were done.
Australian mother Emma was doing her usual shopping when she heard the unusual noise coming from the rotisserie oven behind the deli.
She later realized that the noise notified the employees that the freshly cooked roast chickens were ready to be bagged and displayed in the warm food cabinet.

A confused shopper who repeatedly noticed a ‘cock crow’ every time she visited Woolworths has found that the noise alerted workers that the hot roast chickens were overcooked
“Am I the only one who just realized this sound means the chickens are done at Woolies?” she said in her TikTok video.
“I’ve been hearing this from our local and my seven-year-old for months and I always digress as to what it’s for.”
A Woolworths spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Mail Australia that the rooster crowing is the sound of the rotisserie oven alarm to alert team members that the cooking is done.
The sound of the alarm is set by the manufacturer.
Rooster crowing has been seen in Woolworths stores for years, with many shoppers sharing their experiences of the unusual noise they heard in stores.
‘For the second time I’m near the deli in Woolworths and I hear a rooster crowing. Is this an audio track attempt at a fresh farm vibe, or do chickens go into the barbecue much fresher than I’d think? Has anyone else had this experience too?’ wrote a woman.
Some customers revealed that they knew exactly what the sound was.
“It’s their alarm that tells the deli staff when the roast chickens are done,” one said.

Hot chooks are usually marked after four hours at the discretion of the store manager to reduce waste and ensure freshness
Earlier this year, a frugal shopper revealed the exact time Woolworths roast chickens will go on sale for a fraction of the price.
Hotchooks are marked after four hours at the discretion of the store manager to reduce waste and ensure freshness.
The time the chickens are taken out of the oven is printed on the bag, so all shoppers have to do is return to the store four hours later for a chance to win a great value chook.
A Woolworths spokesperson confirmed at the time that store managers can mark deli items at their discretion after four hours.
