    in comparison to a reg size bird? I know crowing is unique to the roo much like our voices but in general. Mine is not old enough to crow so I have never heard one yet.

    Mine crows as loud as my standard BR did. It is a different sounding crow but just as loud!

    Loud - I have six (6) Roosters and my Silkie Rooster is only outdone by my Blue Ameracauna. And his is a higher pitch.

    Mine was just as loud as my standard Welsummer.

    Size doesn't mean a thing when it comes to crowing. [​IMG]

    I picked up four bantam frizzle cochins from a BYCer in the St. Louis area who found out she wasn't supposed to have roos, and these little guys (hatched the week b/f Thanksgiving) are all crowing, but they sound kinda like squeaky toys. [​IMG] Loud enough to hear from another room, but not that rattle-the-dishes-in-the-cupboards loud like my big RIR roo Sarge. (and no, that's not a fuss, I LOVE hearing my big boys (and now my little boys!) crow! [​IMG]
