    My beautiful EE rooster, Cinnamon is 17 weeks old. He is a sweet boy and take care of his ladies. My neighbors are having a fit over him crowing although their stinkin' dogs bark for hours on end. (I love dogs, I have one, but I don't let him bark for hours on end annoying people).

    I live in Central California about 25 south of Yosemite National Park. Cinnamon is not for fighting or eating, I want him to have good home. Thanks. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    What you should do is go over to their house and tell them that their dog can be heard throughout the neighborhood all day, but a rooster only crows a few timrs in thr morning. Our roosters live about 20 ft from our house and they never wake me. We have 8! I think... maybe 6 roosters... but they dont bug anyone.

    Oh, we've let them know about their dogs who happen to be barking to hear themselves right this minute. Their answer is dogs are meant to be pets and barking is ok, roosters are not. Grrrrr....

    Id like to have a go at them xD just kidding, I dont care what a nieghbor may say about us, we will never get rid of our roosters. Roosters can make excellent pets and loyal friends if you raise them correctly. Keep him in a dark place until like noon. They crow at the first peak of day, if he doesnt have any light until like noon, he wont crow but maybe one time once he is exposed to light.
    Dogs were domesticated to be companions of people, after they were domesticated to protect livestock. Both dog and chicken has a common ancestor. Try borrowing someone elses yappy dog and see how they like it.
