    Alicatt Chillin' With My Peeps

    My polish first crowed at 13 weeks, was days between crowings. My brahma first crowed at 16 weeks, and now at 18 weeks crows Alot... now brahma gets going and polish chimes in. Boyfriend concerned about neighbors, trying to Rehome the brahma I guess. But... Will he chill out a little after puberty? Anybody have a big mouth that quieted down over time? Or anyone want a light brahma who is big with big voice?

    They do calm down a little with the crowing as they get older, and usually single roosters don't crow as much as the dominant rooster does when he has competition. But roosters in general crow, if your neighbors are they type to be upset with a crowing rooster (are roosters legal where you are is another question?) it usually seems that any crowing is too much crowing, especially if the rooster is the type to crow a lot at night.
