    was hoping to breed BLRW's, have a gorgeous colored roo, who is of a very nice size. Bought some expensive girls for him. But, he is annoying. and is now annoying the hubby, so I'm sure the neighbors are getting annoyed too.
    He just won't shut up, it is non stop, all day long. and loud.

    I am contemplating getting rid of him and not breeding them at all. But, I am having people contact me for pullets, so I don't know what to do. Get a different rooster and hope he's not as annoying.

    Are all wyandotte roosters non stop crowers, or is he an exception.

    I have an EE roo who crows, but, he goes in waves. He'll crow for about five minutes, then quiet for an hour or so. with the odd crow.

    is there such a thing as a quiet breed, as far as quiet roosters go ???????????

    all roosters crow, some more than others it per bird though not per breed. I put mine in a sound pproof box until 9 since the neighbors have babies. Maybe you could make one of those

    I am a 'newbie', my chickens are only four months old--but I have four roosters out of forty that I know of. One is like yours. loud and nonestop. One (EE) is free range and once in a while. not annoying at all. Two (S.Sussex and Lakenvelder) are absolutely silent until now. I think it is possible to get one that is not too loud or too often. I am interested in watching the Speckled Sussex--so far not a peep. He is by far the largest and most Rooster looking, but i think he is number two on the order.....I am suprised no one with more expereince has responded

    I try not to let mine out until closer to 9am, for respect of the neighbors. Sometimes, it's earlier due to work etc. but, for the most part close to 9.
    the coop isn't soundproof, not bad, dulls his sound out. I do sometimes put him back in , during the day if he's too freaky. it's cooler in there then outside, so he's okay that way. an d gives his girlfriend a break.

    I am considering looking for a new roo to replace him, I don't think I'd find one worse, if I did, it would end up as dinner.
    This one is getting close, haha. he's a good size too !!!!!!!
    too bad he's so handsome.
