It's worth a try. At very least it should muffle the sound.
Let us know if it works

I heard the roosters still crowing at 6.30am, they are only just starting to crow.

so I made the coop shallower again, about 20cm high

so see what happens this time

the roosters have been in there for a week and I have only heard them once out of 7 days that they have been in.
