how far away from were they from the houses?
we have our big coop is 150' behind the house & there are no other houses near it either. we started our by just putting the chickens in the woodshed which is 8' behind the house :(
forget all of that .....our large breed rooster (buff orpington) would start sounding off at 5am
i could clearly hear that boy from my bedroom:eek:
now that we have a coop way out back i can't hear the roos unless the windows are open. then i can hear them some.

good luck

Well to be fair my Roos lived basically lived next to the house... I guess that's why they were so noisy!!!:).... I think it was also the frequency with which one of them would crow.....but that is just the individual bird and Nowt to do with silkies!!!! So get them as they are lovely natured birds..... By the way the day after I got rid of mine my silkie hen went broody... She must have known it was last chance saloon. :)

My silkie isn't loud but he crows ALL DAY to make up for it. He's got a bit of a napoleon complex too.... acts all tough charging at me.... until I pick him up, then he's a sweetie.
