    I have a blue andalusian rooster (Cogburn) and a silver wyandotte (Meatball), I was just wondering are these two breeds quiet when it comes to crowing. Cogburn is the loud one but he rarely crows more than a couple times a day and that's usually because he's in a match with the neighborhood roosters, and Meatball might crow twice a week Is it the breeds or am I just lucky. Oh and they are both about 7 months old. Not that I mind of course they were a lot louder before my second blue andalusian rooster (russell crow) kicked his way into the slow cooker.

    With older more dominant roosters present,they likely are scared.Say that,I mean,not dominant.When dominant roosters are present,younger weaker ones stay quir,if crowing it could mean competition.
