    The roos crows are loud the hens are quiet though. They aren't very good layers. Have you decided on the breed your getting?

    I have several kinds of bantams and mine aren't as loud as my standards and heavys by any means.

    The roos have their own kind of crow....lol Its different. Almost sounds like their gargling. [​IMG] The hens are quieter than my standards and heavy's as well.

    I love my bantams!!!!!

    I have a few bantams, and they lay pretty much daily for me. I only have hens, so can't give you any insight on the roos... Have fun with them!
