    I'm with you satay, I've got a flock of ducks hanging around and turbo chooks. Problem is they all recognize a free feed when they see one. The turbo chooks make a lot of noise, usually about 2-3 am.:barnie

    I don't think I could have more than one Guinea fowl for the noise factor. I would have lost a lot of birds to foxes without her though. She has a particular alarm call that I just drop everything and run to check the fuss.

    I'm sure I saw a box on here for a noisy rooster that was lined with carpet. There were metal air vents all around the eaves that were all pointing down to minimise the noise. I believe it worked fairly well. There were pictures...was it in this thread? Does anyone else recall it?

    Bbbbaaaaahahahaha Satay.. Imagine them in a suburban area! I think the worst we get is bush turkeys.. They aren't too noisy but DO NOT leave the house doors open if they're around! We have one around here I call him Bert, he came in and took one of my Gucci heels and we found it on his mound! And with legs and nails like his I was so scared to take it back I teased him off with food for the snatch!.. Poor Bert I think he may be gender confused with his passion for high heels hehehe

    It was I who has the night box, haven't used it in a few months as we have been roo-less, but we have some little 5 week olds so we might keep one of them boys for a bit.
