Do roosters naturally stop crowing at a certain age?

    I couldn't seem to find this question anywhere so am starting a new thread. Do roosters stop crowing or crow less as they get older? Or, do they crow their whole lives?

    Most of mine have tended to crow less as they age (4+ years), but they never give it up. They still crow quite a bit in the mornings, not so much throughout the day. Full moon nights are kind of interesting sometimes, something will set them off and they'll go for an hour or so [​IMG].

    I do have multiple roosters, not sure if that changes things. A single rooster with no other roosters in earshot may not crow as much.
