    So im going out on a limb and going from 0 rooster to 4 polish bantam roosters pretty much in one day. These have all lived together since birth and are about 9 months old or so now. They all get along great, but what I am wondering is how loud is the crowing???

    I have heard that polish roos have a "odd" crow, and its not that loud, and they dont really crow all day. I know this can vary depending on the roo, but I just wanted your opinons on this. Those of you that have had polish bantam roos please let me know how they have been for you [​IMG]

    Thanks guys so much!

    It`s a personal thing. Roos have different crows and people have different noise tolerances.

    I'm new to chickens - got my 1st last Spring. Two of the Polish were accidental roosters. One actually masqueraded as a hen until I gave the 1st one away! They were both enthusiastic crowers... all day. I had to get rid of the 2nd one also. One of the neighbors claimed it was giving her nightmares. I traded him for 2 guinea keets;)!

    I'd love to know if there is a breed that doesn't crow much because I really do like roosters.

    uh oh..well hopefully they dont crow all the time. I dont mind a few times a day or so....but I NEED them for breeding purposes [​IMG] I guess it just comes with the territory.

    Hopefully some other polish people will chime in with good answers ... that they only cew a few times a day as opposed to the silkie roo I used to have that crowed every 20 minutes!! lol
