Hi, I recently hatched 9 japanese quails. Ended up with 5 females and 4 males I know the ratio is wrong. But the last four days the males are crowing at 3am but they only do it one at a time. My question is it only the biggest male that will crow. So if i remove the biggest and the smallest male to help the ratio will it also help the noise problem? Thanks

I have two colonies with one rooster in each and hardly ever hear any crowing. I always try to pick the calmer birds, hyper active birds seem to crow more and are more likely to get pecked/bullied.

I pin pointed the male making the most noise and another at random. removed both and the problem is sorted. still a little noise but at least the neighbours windows have opened again. And i got my first egg 2 days ago
