    I have two speckled sussex roos that have never crowed. No clue why, but they are my quietest roos.

    I find my standard cochins are quiet. I have four cockerels and only one of them is crowing at 7 months. He is in the center coop with Orpingtons on one side and Polish on the other. Both of those cockerels crow all the time but the cochins don't answer back. Just my experience can't say for sure.

    my silkies are quieter...but they're being compared to a jersey giant and buckeyes.

    My silkies crow also just as much as my BR's, just think they sound a little softer!! I think it all depends on the rooster itself not the breed !!
