Most vets do not perform de - crowing surgery these days.

You could keep him inside a garage (if you have one) and build and run inside it making it as natural as possible with plenty of light and dirt to dust bathe in.
That's exactly what I was thinking! They are currently mostly indoor chickens (we let them run the house with diapers on and take them to the park or beach every day to get exercise) and it gets really hot in the summer so I'd like to put an AC and mister in as well.

Not the point of the thread, but why on earth would you move from beautiful tropical island Hawaii to dirty dusty deserty Vegas? 😬

This thread has me SMH.
If this rooster is like a child to your family why in the world would you buy a house where one of your children wouldn't be allowed?
I don't see an option that would work.
We have been given a 2 month notice to vacate our current home in Hawaii that we are renting because the owners want to move back in. We were planning on already moving to Vegas because my mother is getting older and I am an only child and have to take care of her. The housing market is crazy right now in Vegas and there are not a lot of options so I had to take what I could get. We don't have anywhere else to go and had to pick a house and quick. Our situation is complicated so please don't judge unless you have been in this situation. That's why I'm on this forum trying to find solutions that will work for both fluffy and the rest of our family.

The median price of a single family home here is a million dollars (and it's usually really small) versus like $300,000 in Vegas. Plus my mom lives there and is getting up in her years; I'm an only child so it just made sense.
Wow, that's as bad as London.

Awww I'm sure your mum will love having you nearby. Can you keep the chickens at her house?

Sometimes we are forced to move where we don't expect to. Not all strategies are laid out.

I think that considering your other thread and the real fact that the chickens are adapted to an almost perfect environment, it might be time to teach your children about loss. You aren't going to get those birds to the mainland without paying a smuggler, not right now anyway.
They would be much happier left with another family.

The chosen path is the one you must walk, and it doesn't have room for a rooster.
