    Based on your experience with both birds which crows louder? I'm guessing very few people will have experience with both but with so many BYC folks out there has to be a few fanatics... I mean fans of both. [​IMG]

    Defintly silkies as they are a chicken and actually Crow... Coturnix do more of a mouth open head shake that makes a very odd sound, not nearly as loud as a crow....

    i dunno... i'm thinking my silkie crows louder...but the coturnix is pissing me off more
    the silkie only cries every once in a while.
    but since its breeding season and my coturnix roo has no hens he's been crying CONSTANTLY and pretty loud too. i'm pretty sure if i measured it it might give my silkie a run for its decibel...
    loudness= unsure
    annoyance = coturnix winner [​IMG]
