    I looked, I just don't know how to make a rooster crow. Mine only does it first thing in the morning but is quiet otherwise, there have been times I wanted to show someone what he sounds like but there is no magic trick that I know of. Once when my dogs were outside he made a weird noise when they ran past the coop....It's a good question, maybe someone knows how to do it. [​IMG]

    seriously it had been less than 10 minutes be patient. [​IMG]

    There really isn't any way to make 'em crow they just crow when they want. Often times it is the more dominent one that crows first and often they are more developed in the wattles and comb. Their is no sure way other than to just watch 'em til one of 'em crows.

    I read it.

    I have to say. If they have barking dogs. Then keep the Roo. If there is an issue they will either let you know or the cops. If they let the cops know. they are only going to tell you to make him stop. Same as a dog. Bring him inside.

    I have also heard that you can bring in the roo at night and put him in a dog crate or whatever so when he's done crowing or put him out when most people go to work.

    Don't get rid of him, unless it's a law that you can't have it. His crowig is no different than a dog barking. ANd usually the roo will stop before the dog!

    Mine don't stop crowing when I walk to them. So just go out there when you hear him. Maybe you'll catch him in the act!

    Good luck!

    hi justino,
    don't take it personally if no one responds to posts right away. lots of us have other stuff going on and it can take hours before we get back to the computer hon.

    re: roosters.
    bring one into the house for 24 hours and leave one out. you will hear the crowing and will be able to deterimine "which" roo it is.

    good luck!

    maybe you can teach the roos to bark instead of crow - not much the neighbors could say about that eh?

    ha ha
    seriously, good luck.

    You could make a foam insulated box and shove the roosters in it at night. I cannot keep rooster either because they would drive the neighbors crazy. I contemplated making an insulated container that would cut down on the crowing in the morning hours but that would not solve the noise problem form an overzealous rooster who might crow now and then all the live long day.

    It really disappoints me not to be able to have some of those beautiful rooster varieties I see here but I am a city dweller and that is the brakes.
