    Roo Crowing ??

    The neighbors called the police on my roos, so I had to get rid of them today or risk paying fines to keep them. Is there some way to either keep them from crowing or "de-crow" them (think de-barking a dog)?

    Dumb Cornish X......

    I have 52 chicks that are almost 2 weeks. They are on 1/2" wire since my tractor is not finished. I have a few that have started to stick their legs through the wire up to and past the joint on the leg and then get stuck! What a pain. Hopefully they will move to the tractor this week.
