Do roosters stop crow when it's too hot?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

It's been hot here.High 90's and low 90's.Starting out in the mornings it's usually 70 something degreese.

 

I noticed that my rooster cut back on crowing,infact he hasn't crowed At All today (at least I have not heard and I have been outside back&fourth.)No other roosters around,accept for a 2 and half month old cockerel,and roosters crows off in the distance.No hens are dominant over him,accept some do seem to bulk up occasionally.

I have a  few chickens.

2 barreds,named Falcon and Hawk

1 New Hampshire rooster named,Zeus

2 New Hampshire hens named,Vanillipe (One has no name)

1 silver laced Wyandotte named,Special girl

1 White Leghorn roosters named Foggy

3 black&red Sex links,(Black)angel,and one red is named little red,and the other one is Mrs.Prissy

And a few others that sadly,died

 

I have a 11 ducks.

I have a lot of roosters. When temperatures / weather is extreme the crowing rate declines. Crowing takes a lot of energy.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

:frowIt has been in the upper 80's and the 90's, mid 90' where I'm at as well. My rooster usually only crows in the morning and noon, before it gets REALLY hot. He doesn't usually get too hot anyway because he's so hardy. What breed is he? Is he heavily feathered? If he started crowing when their was a breeze/sprinkles, he was probably too hot to bother with crowing. My rooster can sometimes get enough energy to crow when he has just did the courtship dance or flirted with one of the girls and he wants to show off . . . :lau
