What does the Bible say about crows?

As far as I can ascertain the word crows is not mentioned in scripture. The word crow however is mentioned seven times, but all have reference to Peter denying Christ i.e., John 13:38 . This does not however refer to a bird but a sound of a rooster.

The raven, of which the Bible speaks often, is in the family Corvidae (crows), probably from where crows generated. In dietary laws of the Old Testament, Israel was forbidden to eat "every raven after his kind," amongst other forbidden animals (Leviticus 11:15). The Lord sent ravens to feed Elijah, when he was in the wilderness: "The ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening." 1 Kings 17:6. Noah had "sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth." Genesis 8:7.

According to Psalm 147:9, the Lord "giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry." Jesus used the ravens as an illustration of God's care for us in Luke 12:24: "Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?" On another occasion, He similarly used sparrows to illustrate this truth.

No. It does not even make the list of the five loudest birds in the world.

The loudest birds are "oil birds", which live in caves and navigate via echolocation. The sounds they make can range up to 100 decibels and this sound is exaggerated because they nest in the thousands. The next loudest birds a re all species of parrots.

What are the differences between a raven and a crow?

Crows and ravens are in the same genus, "corvus," and are similar in more ways than they are different. Ravens are larger and have heavier bills and deeper voices than crows. Ravens are non-migratory and tend to be found in northern and mountainous environments in North America whereas crows are more widespread and may migrate in and out of Canada. Ravens are known to be one of the smartest animals because they are able to make and use tools and can learn to do something just by watching another raven.

See the related link for a great comparison of the two birds.

The difference between a rave and a crow is:

Raven:

The Raven is larger and average 25" tall (64 cm) with a four foot (122 cm) wing span and the beak is more slender and slightly longer than a crows. A raven's feathers shine with blue and purple tints when the sun hits them. The Raven's tail when spread meets at a triangular point.

Crow:

Crows are smaller and approximately 18" (46 cm) tall and their wing span is three feet (91 cm), similar to a dove. The beak is slightly thicker than a ravens. A crows feathers are flint black, may have lighter markings and duller than a ravens feathers. Crows can fluff their feathers into a mane and the tail curves evenly like a seashell.

What does the symbolism of a crow mean?

Crows are sometimes considered to symbolize an omen. They can be good or bad depending on the context they are being used in and what culture is talking about them. Since they are in the same family as the raven they are often associated with death and darkness. Crow is seen by some Native Americans as the left-handed guardian and keeper of the sacred law. While others interpret it as ancient wisdom, and magic. In a tea cup crow is read as ill health. As a child I learned an old English rhyme about crows from my grandmother, it went something like this: One is for bad news, two is for mirth. Three is a wedding, four for a birth. Five is for riches, six is a thief, Seven a journey, eight is for grief. Nine is a secret, ten is for sorrow, Eleven is love and twelve is joy on the morrow.

What is a banty rooster?

Banty is short for Bantam. The old folks back in the day just always call Bantam Roosters, "banty" roosters.

In addition this term is used to describe the behavior of some short men who may tend to walk with a swagger and adopt a somewhat exaggerated male posture. They are called banty roosters after the bantam rooster both because of their size and because their behavior can "out-rooster" the more standard sized rooster.

Bantams are about 1/4 the size of what is considered a "regular" chicken. They are sometimes referred to as domestic game birds. Most people raise them as pets, unfortunately there are those who still raise and use them to fight.

A Banty rooster will try with all his might to mate a standard hen. Whether he can actually make the connection to fertilize eggs is a whole nother question.

What is a group of crows called?

The most widely used term is "murder." A group of crows can also be called a flock, muster or storytelling of crows.

This is based on the (fallacious) folk tale that crows form tribunals to judge and punish the bad behavior of a member of the flock. If the verdict goes against the defendant, that bird is killed (murdered) by the flock. The basis in fact is probably that occasionally crows will kill a dying crow who doesn't belong in their territory or much more commonly feed on carcasses of dead crows. Also, both crows and ravens are associated with battlefields, medieval hospitals, execution sites and cemeteries (because they scavenged on human remains). In England, a tombstone is sometimes called a ravenstone.

The poetic term used in literature is a "murder." Scientists would call them a flock. A murder of crows.

How do you stop a rooster from crowing?

You can't stop 'em from crowing, but you can muffle the noise (between certain hours) by keeping them inside your house (in cages!) or in a sound-boarded chicken house. Location of the roost is also important, as sound will bounce off certain structures and even seem to amplify.

Light is the main reason a rooster will crow after going to roost at night. If any light is getting in the coop he will not settle well. Make sure the inside of the coop is dark once the sun goes down.
