    I don't have one, but I know that that denizili are the longest crower. I have a friend who just hatched some.

    I have a blue cochin roo who I can hear from the house. He mainly crows b/n 6-7am, and occasionally in throughout the day.

    I can't answer most of those, as I'm a suburb girl who can't keep roos, but as far as earliest... one day I bought three straight run banties, and one, a Silver Campine pattern Old English Game Bantam, puffed out his chest and let out what was clearly a chick's attempt at a crow. At four days old. Least I didn't have to guess with him! Sure enough he turned out to be a little cock, though the nicest one I've ever met. Cos I know everyone's a sucker for pics here he is (he, unfortunately, is no longer with us due to a dog):

    Loudest = Easter Egger - meanest too but colorful and impressive.

    Crowed first = RIR that I thought was a girl

    Cared for his ladies the best = Maran - He would find food and give it to his girls and fought a fox to the death [​IMG]

    Dumbest = Jersey Giant. Bricks for brains.

    All my japanese bantams are pretty quiet and only crow moderately often. They generally wait till they have a good reason. I keep 1-2 of them inside in the room next to my bedroom without it really bothering me and most anything keeps me up. However they all start early. Dameru was trying to crow at 3weeks. Shi and the roo I just traded off were crowing at 3months.

    My penedesenca x welsummer roo is LOUD and he crows constantly. Every time your in the coop he crows nonstop and half the time he's outside. I took my neice out to see the chickens and he was so loud it scared her and she wouldn't touch him. I'm glad he's at least 500' from the house. [​IMG]
