    I have a gorgeous Silkie Roo, and he crows pretty much all day....he starts at dawn, and quiets down well before dusk. He crows when he sees us in the yard, when crows are nearby, and sometimes just to hear himself, I think! BUT, the good news is - he's not very loud at all. He has a smaller voice to match his smaller size!

    The father of your chicks crows when ever he feels like crowing. It varies with the day and the individual bird. They are kind of loud and probably hear them maybe 200 feet away.
