    I am curious about this.

    Which breed of rooster generally has the loudest crow?

    Maybe one day I will have lots of land and get the loudest damn rooster I can find. :)

    People on here are always wanting quiet roosters or devises/surgeries to stop a rooster from crowing.

    I want a rooster that crows and lets everyone around know he's there. :)

    My father had a Turken ("Naked Neck") rooster with a very loud crow.

    I would think the bigger the breed, the louder they are?

    That may be generally true, but I am not sure.

    If it is, breeds like Langshan, Brahma, and Jersey Giant should be some of the loudest. I am not sure if that is the case, though.

    I have a 20 month old BJG. He doesn’t crow a lot - many times a day, but really not often. He has a deeper crow than other males. Loud, but not that ear splitting note.

    Tha dark brown leghorn males wouldn’t shut up and they were loud. We got rid of them around 5 months and I did not miss their crowing - it was annoying. They were colorful and attractive though, so definite plus for their very rooster-like appearance, and great tail feathers.

    we had a talkative and loud Black Copper Marans, but hormonal and aggressive do we sold him at approx 5 months.

    We had a BA, not excessive crowing but more than the BJG. Loud, clear, good crowing.

    had an EE- never crowed.

    currently have 2 Dorkings, but they are just hitting puberty, no crows yet.

    Wow, that is a long crow. :)

    He is not the loudest crower, but that is the longest crow I have heard from a rooster.

    Long crow roosters or laughing roosters would be my first choice.

    Good luck getting the latter to the western world though.

    I got the BJG is a Black Jersey Giant. EE is Easter Egger. Is a BA a Black Australorp?

    So the loudest is the Jersey Giant?
