    Chicken and Dumplings would be one way to stop the Rooster from crowing, course that is what a rooster does---Crow at the Break of Dawn

    I had a Serama in the house. Had.... He's outside now. There is no way to shut them up. I just rehomed my two loudest guys. Still have the Serama. He's just so cute. LOL

    Oh yeah! You could get a no crow collar. I have one and decided not to use it when my Cochin wasn't as annoying as I thought he was going to be. I put one on my Serama and he bit me hard, so be careful.

    Roosters crow. It's what they do. FWIW, he really doesn't need to be in the house. Chickens, when properly acclimated, are much better off outside in the cooler temperatures than inside. Does he not have any other chickens to keep warm with?

    I'm curious about the exactness of the time 7:13 after which presumably it would be ok to crow....I am sure that you really mean well but the cold weather will not likely harm him unless he is in the open with no closed shelter..If the cockrel in the picture is he, he is a really good looking pet chicken...Chickens need other chickens for their well being and contentment; and since you seem to be such a nice caring person get him some chicken friends or find a home where he has some to be with...
