    My neighbor has a Dominique rooster and I can hear him crow every day from two blocks away, though he's not that loud. I would think how loud it would crow would depend more on the specific bird rather than the breed, but I've never owned a rooster so I wouldn't know [​IMG]

    The larger the bird, the louder and lower in pitch. THe smaller he bird, the higher the pitch. Maybe get a longcrower for your neighbor to enjoy?
