It's not a good idea to put him in the bathroom, that will only be a temporary fix, and later he will be worse.
He's cooing because he want a mate,
its good he has other birds to keep him company, but isolating him will cause psychological damage.
Get him a female mate and he will probable be very happy.

Hope This Helps

Good Luck

Unfortunately, at the end of the day, he is a male pigeon and once they are of age, they will coo.. this is actually a good thing, it means he is healthy and looking for a mate (or he sees you as his mate). I don’t think there’s a way to make him stop cooing for good, to ask him to stop cooing would be to ask him to stop being a pigeon. It’s just what comes with pigeons. The best you can do in your power to keep it to a minimum would be to make sure he has plenty of mental stimulation (like toys, playing games, or maybe it would be fun for you to teach him some tricks! Pigeons are very intelligent) and keep down the association of you as a possible mate (such as no petting his back, as I think you said you try not to). I would be very worried about his well-being if he DIDN’T coo much, honestly, so know you have taken good care of him. If you absolutely need a quieter companion pigeon, the females are known to be much quieter!
