Like maybe putting cork up on the inside. My Serama roos start crowing at about 6-6:30am which means they will have to be brought into the house every night until I can rehome them.

Sound proofing implies total containment, and no ventilation, and that's bad for chickens.
You can help reduce the noise level, but roosters do crow!
Indoors, and at least they are tiny!

I didn't think about the ventilation. good point.
However, if you heard a Serama roo crow in a house you would think it was a Jersey Giant!!!! and if one crows, they all feel the need to chime in.....:barnie

Bummer. I guess it is better than 5:30 am like it is at my house. I sleep with a sound machine on, so it is not a problem for me, but it is not good if you have close neighboors. I personally love roosters crowing.

We made a wooden box about 2x2 lined it with egg cartons for sound reduction. Stuff about 6 inches of gay or draw in the bottom. Our lid is on the top, just a wooden lid with hinges its not snug at all just enough were the rooster can't pop on out. It has a spilt i the middle with lots of holes. We will be trying to improve upon the concept as our box hasn't held up as well.

Sorry to bring back an old thread, but I was actually wondering about something similar, and figured it might be better to ask here vs starting a new thread. We use sound proof tiles at my job, and I was curious about using them in say, the nest boxes, since I hear hens can be the noisiest when laying.
