    We have 4 little Australorp bantams ( we think) not quite sure how old they are, 1 has just started to crow in the morning only and the other is dropping what seems to be the whites of egg but no shell or yolk. Also due to living in town we cant have a rooster crowing at all hours, so any ideas on how to keep him quiet in the morning would be great as he is so friendly. thanks
