Lincoln is our year-old EE roo. He's a wonderful gentleman, and takes great care of his ladies. He even has a girlfriend. However, every morning he begins crowing around 3:30. Every once in a while it will be as early as 12:30. DH and I are at our wits end. We are early to rise, but even that's too early for us! We don't have a noise ordinance, but I don't want to be a bad neighbor either. We let him out of the coop at 5 am, and try to keep him awake as late as possible (like trying to get a baby to sleep through the night). We're going to try to move our coop farther from our house (and our neighbor's) and insulate it, but just in case, does anyone have any tricks for keeping a noisy roo quiet? Has anyone tried those dog collars that keep them from barking? Or peanut butter on the roof of their mouths ? Maybe squirting him with water every time he crows? I'm open to just about anything!
