Rooster

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I want to get a rooster but I have neighbors close by and didn't want to disrupt them. I was wondering if a rooster shock collar was safe and if it worked.

I have never heard of one that worked. Neither with a crow collar. If you have neighbors close by and REALLY want a rooster I would say go for something quiet, I have heart silkie Roo's can be quiet? Maybe do some research ^^

Surely you don't really mean 'shock' collar?

 

 A rooster collar works by putting pressure on their throat/vocal chords.....

......it does not use an electrical shock like a dog shock collar does.

 

Rooster collars can quiet them down some, but not totally.

There are many risks and it takes a lot of monitoring so they don't choke to death.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
