    Hmm, I don't really think there is a way to control crowing. Is he alone? Having some ladies to be with might help.

    I found a "no crow collar" online. My roosters weren't happy at first but it helped make the volume of the crow . It doesn't make so they don't crow. And they were both able to eat and drink and do everything a rooster does happily.

    Knowing more about the situation might garner a viable solution or at least an explanation.
    How many 'roosters'?
    How many females?
    How old are they all?
    How are they all housed?
    My first thought is, multiple males create an environment of competition.....all the crowing could just them all striving for vocal dominance.

    Could be spring is in the air, the hormones are flowing, and the males are trying to gather their harems....
    .....or something could be alarming them, a predator lurking perhaps.
