Will it bother your family or the neighbors? I sleep right through mine crowing. Used to it.
My rooters do not crow in the dark, if that helps.

Ours crow whenever they feel like it, honestly. I guess you could try keeping him totally if the dark, if that's possible, but chickens are generally light sleepers and if the mood strikes them they will crow, even througout the night. I've heard our roos crowing at 3:00AM, or sometimes even earlier, though not always...usually they hear something that sets them off. Can you bring him, like, into the garage at night? I'm guessing you're worried about the neighbors complaining?

My roos crow all the time, all day. I have read if their roost is high enough they cant strech out to crow. I dont know if it works, never needed to stop mine. It seems like they could just jump down and crow if they really wanted to. If people start complaining just get a guinea, they'll be happy to here a roo crow then.

My rooster crowed all night long even without something to wake him up. If your close to neighbors you may want to think of something because I ended up having the town come and harass me. :mad:
