    Does anyone know of a way to stop my two roosters from crowing so early in the am? They start around 4:30am and are disturbing my husband's sleep and my neighbor. Would locking them up in a dark place keep them from crowing until I let them out? Does anyone have a solution. I don't want to rehome them or kill them or anything like that. I just want them to not crow until at least 7 or 8am. Thanks for any suggestions!!!

    I don't know, I love my roo's loud a$$ mouth. [​IMG] I sure if you can lock them up where they can't see any light at all they might wait for you to let them out. [​IMG]

    Best idea I have is to give your hubby and the neighbor some ear plugs. Roo's will be roo's and I love to hear mine crow, which is early, late, and often! Good Luck.
