    does a rooster only crow in early morning? Break of Daylight, or does he crow anytime of the day?
    I have a 22 week old polish crested and was wondering how often my neighbors ae going to hear him before they get up in the AM? Got him on craigslist for sale in Yakima, WA

    My BO Roo is approx 6 months old and he crows not only in the morning but during the day also..he crows to gather his ladies and he crows to the other ladies next door...he starts crowing in the morning when we let him out of his coop..on the weekends we let him out a little later in the morning...he crows while in the coop but it is not loud enough to bother anybody..once we let him out he crows! When I holler to him to come to the coop..he crows to answer me! So to answer your question...my Russell Crow will crow at any given time of the day! He started when he was about 16-17 weeks old!

    They crow whenever they feel like it. Dawn, midday, dusk, when they're mad, when they're scared, when they're confident, when you're outside trying to have a conversation, when a hawk flies overhead, when a butterfly comes by, when someone drives up, when you go out to check the mail. . . pretty much whenever they want.

    Some roos are quieter than others, but there's not really anything you can do about a constant crower other than to get rid of him by whatever method you choose.

    I've heard my boys crow all day and I've also heard them at 2, 3 and 4am crowing. The good news is you soon don't even notice it. My son sleeps in the house on the side closest too the coops and they don't bother him at all.

    Roosters crow ALL DAY LONG. They do it when they want to mate. They do it when they want food. They do it when they want outside. They do it whenever they want to just hear themselves make noise.
