    I have two pullets, then one rooster (we just found out he was a rooster today), and my rooster crows A LOT for like 15 minutes then he stops. That is fine with me, but they are "illegal chickens" and I can't have my neighbors find out. Is there a simple way that I can discourage crowing without getting rid of him, or hurting him in any way? Thanks for your help!!

    Nope. Roosters crow and there is really no way to stop them unless you get rid of them. We are not allowed to have roosters here either or I would totally have one...or two. LOL [​IMG]

    Sorry no can do................. they do what they do and you can't do diddly to stop it. since they are illegal undocumented chickens perhaps they could qualify for protection and get green card legal status, LOL. I think you probably already know what you have to do if he keeps crowing constantly or risk you getting ratted out and lose them all. good luck.
