I agree I love waking up to a roosters crow too.. But I live in the "country" so to speak, so people really can't complain here big_smile

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

It is possible, but very dangerous.

My rooster crows at the sirens going by.  We live a few streets away from a major state highway, so they go by a lot.  I'm hoping no one complains about him.  I'll be so sad to say goodbye.

Sure, it's easy. Just turn it's head until it clicks. It's kind of an off switch I guess. There doesn't seem to be an on switch though.

To address the idea of planting Jerusalem artichoke for rooster-crowing buffer -
Jerusalem artichoke (sunchoke) is edible and spreads.  The tubers (like small potatoes) are crisp and yummy.  In Vermont it is a perennial that dies back in  the winter.  I don't know how it acts in southern climes.  I have some planted inside a large tire in my front yard.  (The tire is buried.)  This is to keep the J. artichoke from taking over my front yard.  It looks sort of like a small-flowered sunflower.  It is both pretty and edible - my ideal in a front yard plant.  I don't know how well it would work for blocking rooster crow noise.

A varied urban flock of 1 SLW (Lacie), 1 BR (Claudia), 1 BA (Sheila), and 1 Welsummer (Cassie).  New in May 2012: four miniature Silver Appleyard ducklings, now being raised by Lacie.

A castrated rooster doesn't crow, I don't think. (Sorry - having a brain fart about what they are called).

ETA: OH! They are called capons.

I  did a google search for these and found this article

  In the article it says that they should be called "fartichokes"    laugigep
