Polish bantam - how loud a crow?

    I have a polish bantam that looks as if he is going to be a rooster - is developing a very spiky hairdo, forked comb and pointy feathers around his neck. We are in the city and the neighbours are not going to put up with a loud crow.... does someone have any experience with this breed crowing - is it likely to be lots and loud (in which case I need to make a plan to find him a new home) or is their any chance that he might be a quieter type? He is small enough that I could bring him inside the house at night if that would help.... I'm just wondering how practical that would be - has anyone tried that?

    He is a handsome wee chap and I'd love to keep him if I could. Also is it likely that he will eventually get reasonably tame? - so far he is pretty flighty and fast (unlike his foster mother the pekin).

    My polish roo is standard, not bantam, so I can't tell you for sure. But my big guy crows a lot, but it doesn't seem too loud.

    Hopefully a polish bantam person will come along and answer this question. Good luck!

    polish bantam have a fairly high pitched crow and can be moderately noisy depending on the bird. my buff laced roo is vary noisy but i know a friend of mine has a white roo who almost never crows, it varies.
