    I am not so sure that keeping him dark would keep him from crowing.

    Maybe rig up a temporary something that you can try just once to see.

    If it works, then you can bother with something permanent.

    For temporary...could you just use a thick blanket?

    Tell the guy to wear ear plugs if he is sensitive. This is nature, it happens and he needs to deal with it! lol, he can use a fan- white noise, radio what ever! Grrrr. lol

    they wouldnt suffocate. People put covers over parrot and bird cages all the time to keep the birds quiet and calm.

    Just dont expect it to work. Fred would crow at 2am some days. No sun at 4am:rolleyes:

    We had a little BB guy that would crow every hour on the hour!!! He was our clock until something I guess got tired of his crowing and ate him.
