I put this in this section because I guess it's got to do with chicken behaviours. We have a Light Sussex rooster and have managed to keep him from crowing. I don't know if it's the breed of more the individual, but I've heard bantams tend to crow throughout the day. What we do is each evening we bring him inside a soundproof dog carrier, and he sleeps in there. He seems to like it because when we bring him in he snuggles up into his carrier right away. Each morning until about 8:30 am he crows and crows, and then he just stops. We take him out with his girls and for the rest of the day he doesn't make a sound. For the first week however, he would do the odd crow so we just brought him inside every time he crowed and he stopped. This don't work with the Australorp rooster we had, he just crowed throughout the day. Now I thought it was just the individual rooster, but we got another Light Sussex rooster and he does the same! I think it's the breed, but it could just be luck I guess. Has anyone else had experiences with roosters that crow less or more?
