Help with loud rooster!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a sex link rooster, but I can't have roosters where I live due to the crowing. Is there anything I can do to make him quiet? I've seen the NoCrowRoosterCollar on youtube, but some roosters are still very loud while wearing the collar. My rooster is a very large, and very loud boy. Any help is appreciated!

Sorry to suggest this, but re homing is about the only practical solution.  He is too old to be turned into a capon,   and there is an alternate solution, but it is gruesome and cruel,   I WOULD NEVER DO. 

I cant keep roosters ether where I live. 

WISHING YOU BEST  and :welcome

A capon is a rooster less than 10 weeks old that has its testicles removed.   It grows up looking different than a rooster and does not crow.    Read up on the subject of caponizing   (There are threads here on   BYC.)  and you will know the procedure.   Its not pleasant.     Its done without anesthesia.

I don't believe the no crow collars work. - When they first came out  some collars were on too loose and the roosters got their toes caught in it, trying to get it off. If they are too tight it can choke the bird.    I know there used to be a vet that offered  de-crowed roosters  for $ 200 each, various breeds.  I think that's too much money for a bird that might not even be close to breed standards/ or may turn out to be aggressive etc.
