    Are there any breeds of roosters that either don't crow or are quiet or is it just some individuals.

    I believe it's an individual preference of the rooster. I've one now that really only crows before dawn to few minutes after being let out of coop then only when there is a problem. Like if the water dispenser gets knocked over or there is a pullet escape. There is a range of vocals within any breed too. Some have that classic crow that booms across the land and others have a less pleasant screech but doesn't travel as far.
