Found a way to stop my rooster's crowing

    He was crowing several times. I let out an attempted loud hawk sound, but not a very good one (okay a super-poor one); whatever, it shut him up. If you can't convince them, confuse them.
    ETA A shrill whistle between your fingers works well too.

    Actually your roo is smarter than you think he is. HE has taught YOU to join in his crowing. [​IMG] Now he has a crowing partner. [​IMG]
