I would really love to know why my roosters love to crow in the middle of the night right through till morning. They're all locked in the same coup.
I had my neighbour complain so I box them and still I hear them crowing at midnight.... naughty boys.
I'm investing in some Boral soundproof sheeting to make a nice soundproof box. I will post this elsewhere.

As we are keeping an illigle cockrel (Coffee) at the back yard :oops: my hubby got up before dawn break, take Coffee out of the coop, :catch: put him on the ground and laundry bucket over him. He said it stop the chook crowing by not have the space to strech the neck... :hmmm: don't know what the neck stretching have anything to do with crawing, but it work. Have not hear Coffee crow since the laundry bucket treatment.. :thumbs:

Btw.. Coffee do have a bit of space to move under the bucket.. I don't think he is too uncomfortable as he did not made any protest noice while under there :|

:thumbs: :lol: Coffee in a bucket just what you need first thing in the morning. thanks for the tip.
I spent today making my rooster box but tonight i didn't box them as last night the whingy neighbour had a very loud party till all hours. We are rural/residential so I can have a rooster but some people just love to complain. Also when your in the bush your party noise travels miles.. :roll: so he can hear my rooster crow his little heart out tonight :wink:

:rofl: Fair enough too! :rofl:

I'm very grateful for no neighbours.. between the dogs, chooks and roosters, we would keep the council complaints department busy if we did have some! :lol:

We had sooo many complaints from the neighbours about my poultry (there was nothing wrong sure I had too many.....20 when the limit is 6 but I got a permit claiming they are ornamental and rare :P ) that the council actually gave up coming :rofl: and ignored all the complaints from the neighbours.

Double-laced barnevelder caught mid-crow.
In the bachelor pad they compete for airtime.
