No kidding.  i had a rooster that crowed 24/7.  He now lives on a 128 acre farm, far far away.  You could charge a very large premium for a quiet rooster.

Do you have more than one rooster? I once owned a couple of brown leghorn boys, and the dominant one crowed constantly. The other one crowed a few times in the beginning, just getting his voice, and then NEVER crowed again for the rest of his life!! It was amazing! I also had a buff orpington rooster who just crowed a couple times in the am, and a couple times in the afternoon. But he seemed to crow more when he had human company. He liked to show off for us. Interesting question, I don't think I've heard anyone asking how to get their rooster to crow!! I'm of a like mind, I love the sound!! smile

Maybe I could borrow Rambo for a week so he may teach my Randy (a buff cochin) how NOT to crow!!

Our rooster, Eustus, only crows when he hears me walking the dog in the morning.
He's very well mannered.  Not sure what kind of chicken he is - he just happened upon our property late last summer and after saving him from the hawks we decided to keep him. 

I can make him crow if I talk sweet to him and make a crowing sound.  He's funny!

I wouldn't complain too loud about a rooster that doesn't crow!!  Could be a blessing in disguise!

I like to hear the roosters so here hoping he'll get his voice soon.  I have a pic but can't remember how to add it. Actually I have another question nothing to do with roo's.  I have 16 girls and am only getting 6-10 eggs daily usually 6 why is this so!!!!!!!!!!

How old are they, what temperature is it now where you are living, and how many hours of daylight are there? When its warmer t hey will lay more eggs, and also when its lighter longer they should lay more eggs.
