    Silent roosters are never a problem. Never had one myself and all hit the road as soon as they violate our "don't ask, don't tell" policy by telling.

    Yep, if you lived in my neighborhood, you'd be getting rid of a crowing rooster. A silent one even I could live with.

    Hi,

    I hope you get lucky and find that you have a silent roo, but that would really be the exception.

    This reminds me of one of our cats, she goes through all the motions of whining and crying, yet nothing comes out. It is really funny and we nicknamed her "Silent Screams". Believe me, she isn't suffering or anything like that (she has done this for years and is very healthy) but she does it when she is looking for attention. She makes sure she is right in front of your face so you can see her!

    Good luck with the roo! Genie

    sure wish that my roo was a silent one! [​IMG] I just found him a good home when I went to our fair. I too live in a neighborhood, and he has sounded off more than once. [​IMG] Luckily though, no one has complained as yet. But as you know, you can't take the chance of someone calling animal control on us, right? [​IMG]

    When I said I never had a silent rooster, I should have added that I've never known anyone that did. Not sure such a creature actually exists.
