    i've been putting mine into a medium sized dog crate and putting a doubled up blanket over it to drown out the noise. i can still hear him but it make a BIG difference. no neighbors have complained yet since i've been doing it.

    i'm residential so i am not supposed to have a roo! (but i am hiding 2 crowers and a as-yet-to crow cockerel in my basement, and one in my sound proofed garage coop with his girls.)

    if someone could come up with a way to control the crowing they could make A LOT of $$$!! [​IMG]

    btw, i let him out at 7am to run around free for the day!

    I was told by a judge one time that the reason they are crowing in the dark is because they hear something outside of their coop and they want the intruder to know that they are in his territory. Mine crow at 3am sometimes, but our barn is next to the woods so maybe there is something to this. [​IMG]
