I never wanted a rooster - until one of my pullets ended up being a cockerel and he started crowing. I LOVE the sound of a rooster crowing. Fortunately - the chicken coop is far enough away from the house that I don't hear him unless I want to. And neighbors are even further away.
haha! I brooded two silkie chicks in the basement, and the dark one started crowing one day...It was like "WHAT WAS THAT?!" I babied those two so much...My husband said "They have to go outside NOW!" He was waking us up in the morning with his crazy honking crowing sound!
