Quieter Rooster

I hear that Bantam Rooster are a quieter breed, as in less volume, but still crow.

This was a quick find:

Crowing is caused by one of two things: Dominance or feeling unsafe. If YOU are dominant, your roosters won't have a reason to crow for that, and otherwise they'll crow if they feel unsafe or insecure in their environment, which you can also remedy by spending enough time with them to ensure your position of dominance means that they are well taken care of, they have plenty of food and water at all times, and there's nothing to worry about.

Well all our chickens are spoiled rotten and get too much attention. But you may have something here because this last roo was very frustrated,we never let him mate with the chickens in the pen next to him because we did'nt want fertile eggs yet. He was next to 10 hens .
This time we will let him in with the hens .I hear a roster is like a jack donk,never can breed too much.

We gave the roo back . it was not a good looking Barred Rock. If we decide to let them breed i want them to come from good stock so 'if'we use them for meat they will be worth the work of prepping them.:wave:
