    They have a rooster that makes a loud sound every morning.
    Crying baby every morning will surely wake up the parents.

    And I believe that if you make a habit to sleep early and wake up every 5 in the morning, you will get used to it and no need for alarm clock.

    Would hear the rooster crow, thinking to themselves I have got to get  up with the chickens! smile

    i have heard early morning bell rings from the church  and sounds made by birds and roosters wake people up even now. That might have helped them even then.

    Good question.  I heard some people tell me they had to rely on their internal time clock.  Going to bed at a regular time helped.  Maybe they slept where the sun would hit their eyes, waking them up early.

    The rooster and sunshine I would say was their wake up call.
    The biological clock is what everyone has.
    You could do an experiment. In bed before falling a sleep tell yourself that you have to wake up certain time, repeat it to yourself a few times and you would wake up when you should.
    sometimes i do this. For example, when I want to wake up at 8 in the morning, by setting up the biological clock I wake up at 07:59 exactly 1 minute before actual time. smile
