Do some breeds of rooster crow more than others?

    Hi, all!

    I have some Dark Cornish amongst other chicks coming tomorrow. At first I was just going to put them in the freezer but the more I read here in the forums, the more I want to try a meat project.

    The problem is, I have just had "the talk" with all my neighbors and promised them that there would be no roosters and therefore no 3 am crowing. I'm going to try to keep the roosters' portion of the coop thoroughly insulated to muffle the sound and maybe not let them out until a decent time in the morning, but other than that, I don't know what to do.

    Is there a chance that Dark Cornish don't crow as much as other breeds? [​IMG]

    I agree my bantam roosters are by far the loudest crowers of the lot.
