    Do roosters crow inside coops? I would like a rooster but am concerned about the noise they might make. I got to thinking that maybe they don't crow much inside. I'm thinking this was a dumb question/thought but I just had to ask.

    Thanks

    Some roosters will crow inside or outside, no matter the time.

    Roosters Crow, that is what they do. They will crow where ever they are, inside a coop will make no difference. They can even crow without being able to stand straight up !

    My rooster can crow 14 time in one minute !

    Mine does! If fact, he crows occasionally throughout the night. I've also noticed that the more activity or people that are around the more he crows. Silly showout! Have gone in the coop after dark to get eggs and count heads before locking up for the night and he's crowed while I was in the coop - VERY LOUD in a 7'x8' enclosed area.

    My delaware roo crows around 4:30 am, and then again if he gets lost (behind a car, snowdrift, shed etc.) and can't see the rest of the flock. Otherwise he's real quiet.. and he's not SUPER stupid, he only gets lost once or twice a day... the morning crows are really loud, the others are less so. You should borrow a male chinese goose for a few weeks, THEN get the roo, it will be so quiet in comparison!!!

    We had an Ameracauna rooster that began crowing at 3am. The neighbors were nice about it but they weren't amused...so we gave him away.
