    I do not know the answer to your question, but around here, some people seem to find the higher pitched crow of bantam roos more irritating than the deeper crow of standard sized roos.

    The answer is yes; there are breeds where the rooster cros less.

    Asil and Malay crow much less that many other breeds. I have one strain of Kulang type Asil that I have never heard crow. I'm sure they do but in the 5 plus years I've had them I have never heard the cocks crow once.
