Try that new no crow collar maybe? If nothing else, its more proof that the neighbor lady is crazy and your rooster isn't a nuisance.

Mr. Rooster (that's his name) either walks backwards with it on or seems like he isn't getting enough oxygen and lays down...Yes, lays down, head to the floor and falls to sleep. At that point I can't get that thing off of him fast enough! I'm such a sap when it comes to these things. I can't stand to see anything suffer!
Any suggestions on the collars? 

Chickens seem to respond to things by backing up, bucking and laying down. I put saddles on several hens because the roosters were imjuring their backs. You would have thought it was a rodeo from all of the jumping, bucking and rolling around that went on. They settled down and have been just fine once they got accustomed to the saddles.

I have a silkie bantam rooster and I could never get the No Crow Collar to work. Sad. It's a great idea just wish it worked or I can buy something that will help out rooster crowing.
