    I cant have crowing chickens where I live but I really want a rooster. I know they are pretty uncommon but anyone have a rooster of any breed/mix that doesnt crow?

    [​IMG] all roosters crow and they even crow at night sometimes not just first thing in the morning so my advice to you is dont get one there are plenty of breeds out there with pretty hens and i have never heard of roosters being rare because if that is the fact then i have a bunch of rare birds that hatched a while ago. lol But look around you will find nice hens

    Jeez people no need to be rude or think i'm crazy [​IMG] I've already found someone that has a rooster that is mature and doesnt crow at all. It's not impossible. And I wasnt saying rooters are uncommon I said roosters that dont crow are uncommon.

    It could very well be the reason he doesn't crow is because he is not the dominate rooster. So just be prepared.
