    I have 3 silkie roos and the only one I can't hear in my house is the one who just started and his crow is very quiet. The other 2 are just as loud as my EE roo [​IMG]

    It depends on how far from your house they will be. I can't hear any of my roosters crow while I'm in the house right now.
    My coop is 350 feet from the house. In the summer, I can hear them crowing... I can also hear the ladies ba'gawk-ing over the best laying boxes.
    So, therefore, my answer remains...
    It depends on how far your house is from the coop, how well your house is insulated, whether your windows are open, and how loud your roosters are. My standard roosters have crowing "battles" to see who's loudest. My 2 partridge silkie roos take part in this ritual - it can get pretty loud. (I have 6 silkie roosters, but only 4 of them crow. Of the 4 crowers, only 2 crow loud & often.)

    My silkie is just as loud as the BO's. They crow back and forth all day. The coops are about 150 yds. in back of the house and I can hear them all when the windows are open in summer or when I let the dogs out, but with the house closed up now I don't hear them. Blarney (silkie) sounds like he's trying to sing Beethoven when he crows....da da da DAAAAAAAAAAH. The last note is always off key. [​IMG][​IMG]
