    We have a very large coop that is about 40' from our nearest neighbors window. He freaked out last year when we tried to keep a rooster in there because it started crowing at 4 AM every day and was waking him up. I'm not at all concerned about how much noise is made during the day, just what is made in the early hours of the morning.

    So, does anyone have any experience with turkeys and waking everyone up? The roosters in a different coop (much further away) already do it to us, but that's of no concern, just need to keep the neighbor happy.

    We have 20 straight run Red Bourbons, three weeks old.

    Our tom wakes me up. Roosters never did, even though they would start around 3 am. Ducks or geese never woke me, but the turkey does. However, if I turn on a fan the noise doesn't bother me.
