That was what I wanted to do with my bantam Cochins since I ended up with a perfect quintet of 4 girls and 1 boy but HES SO DANG LOUD!! I’m not sure he’ll be around long enough but then there’s also the fact that I don’t have any more room (nor desire) to hatch anything else right now so maybe it’s a good thing. I would like a few more quail but they lay plenty lolWith 15 hens, I have kept 2 roos. Specifically for the breed, Bielefelder. That way if I want to incubate some more chicks next year, I can (hopefully).
I was considering doing this myself recently but I’m not sure how I’d do it without removing the ventilation? Cause I leave the eaves open on my coops ? And have windows? So not sure it would work? Current one I also have vents but new one I don’t.Has anyone ever considered insulating there coop with a sound absorbing material to diffuse the roosters crowing? I did and I barely hear them. Cause they were waking me a bit to early than I wanted to get up. Just wondering
Thank you!! That’s very interesting!!! So it works to reduce the sound or?I didn't cover my vents, window, and door those are always open. I attached the material top half of the wall and ceiling.
Edited: I used my old queen box spring's material, it had a carpet pad attached to it and I repurposed it to the coop.
