My friend is getting ride of her Japanese Bantam two hen and a roo, they are soooo cute!!! But I'm just worried about the crowing. They told me that it sounds pretty pathetic but I dont wana risk my neighbors complaining. I'm just wondering if this is a good Idea tongue

Well.... I have nothing but bantams and ohh my gosh are they noisey especially the serama roosters in the house. I think however that if you only have 1 rooster he should stay fairly quiet but i can't be sure

Seramas, Cochins, EE's, 1 Japanese hen, few frizzles & Too many roosters and a ton of babies cruising the yard. Home of the ninja squirrel.

I was curious about this too! I was told by a couple of people (not on BYC) that the smaller breeds were not as loud, so I asked the girl that works at our feed store and her answer was that the all roosters crow and they can all be loud. She then took me in the back area behind the feed storage barn and showed me a cochin rooster and yes he could be loud! I was surprised and a little upset because I would love to have a rooster but I dont think it would go over well with my one set of neighbors.

I prefer to describe myself as "delightfully difficult" And it would just be easier if you agreed.

no matter where my banty roo is, he sounds like he is in the room with me! 

he is loud and proud, thinks he's large and in charge.  (don't tell him he's a little shrimpy fella!)

I have had bantams and standards.  I think they are equally loud.  And the bantams tend to be a higher pitch which makes them louder in my mind.

My Jap only crows a couple times a day now that he's been doing it a while it is short and to the point instead of drawn out like my BR. The coop is about 350 ft from the house and I can barely hear him when we don't have the windows open.  If you're in a neighborhood it may not be a good idea to get him unless the neighbors don't mind.

Have a great hubby, mother to two great kids... We have a Barred Rock, Buff Std Cochin, EE, Buff Columbian Cochin bantam, Blue Andalusian, Brown Leghorn, FBCM, Game hen, frizzle, a splash Polish pair, one handsome Black Ameraucana roo and a handful of play pretty Silkies.

My polish banty is not that loud.  He crows alot, but the sound doesn't carry like a standard.  I can hear the neighbor's standard rooster from 1/2 mile away.

Better to give your kids your values you have than the valuables you can't afford.
