I have seen this mentioned as a joke on some other threads- But was wondering if this is really possible? I , luckily don't have to worry about that , but I know that the rooster crowing makes it impossible in some places to keep them. Would it be a very invasive operation ? Would it be better to be done while it is still a chick. Would it be considered cruel? I was just wondering about this and I have no opinion one way or another. Just thought that people who live where no roosters are allowed might be able to keep one if He didn't crow.
