    New Rooster crow dampening, noise reducing device

    Hey all, I am a passionate backyard chicken farmer, and over the last couple years I designed and perfected a simple “device” that dramatically dampens a rooster’s crow to a level that is much quieter than a squawking hen. It is easy to apply. It does not choke the rooster in any way, unlike...

    Non-Emergent: Cockeral Wheezes after Crowing

    I feel sort of guilty posting this when others have much more urgent problems, but I'll do it anyway. My eight month old silkie rooster, Peter, wheezes after he crows. I'm not sure, but I think this is new. I noticed it yesterday morning, because he crowed several times. He crows, then sharply...

    Chicken breed

    I want to be sure on what breed this is since we've been told different things. I am still new to chickens and the 3 biggest turned out to all be roosters. The other 2 roosters are blue/grey australorps. So if you could let me know what breed this is, I'd be so thankful. :))

    Adorable Attempt at a Crow for 8 week old Cockerel

    I just had to share this because it's too cute! "KnotHead" is 8 weeks old. He is from a Crested Cream Legbar Hen and Copper Maran Rooster. My daughter named him this because he has always had a knot on his head, right before his beak starts. All 3 guys are going to be joining their bigger flock...

    Button Quail bedding and indoor home set up.

    Hey there, I just have a couple questions about my wee quails. The first question is about the bedding. When I got my first one, I had no idea what to do with her. She was a petland reject that had brain damage so they just gave her to me. The store had no idea how to care for quails and they...

    Rooster loosing his voice!

    We have a Barred Rock rooster, Brooks. He is around 9 months old and suddenly he is loosing his voice. In the mornings his crow sounds pretty normal but as the day goes on it gets worse, and by evening he looses his voice mid-crow. But the next morning it is normal again and the process starts...

    My daughter loves birds, and after an extensive research on chicken breeds, the bantam Old English Game Bantam (OEGB) became the choice.

    Strange noise from 7week old.

    Any ideas as to why she makes this noise. I call it a girl but I am unsure as if yet if it really it is. It sounds like a miniature rooster crow. My video is too large will try to upload another one. She is 7 weeks this Thursday. Can a rooster crow that early??

    Chickens or Crows

    These ladies were sold to me as splash bearded Ameraucanas. I knew when I first saw them that the woman was bamboozling me (I know the difference between an Americana and Ameraucana), but I took them anyways, because the supposed parents were cool looking. Jokes on me. What do y'all think they...
