    Does anyone know of any techniques for decrowing young roosters. When I was a child I knew a farmer who would de crow his roosters but I never learned the technique. If anyone is aware of such a technique please respond or email me at : [email protected].

    Thanks!

    The city made my neighbor decrow their rooster. It was either that or get rid of it. If you find anything out let me know.

    As far as I know it should to be done by a vet and it is a pretty risky surgery

    I can't find anyone to do the procedure. Has anyone ever heard of it being done at home?

    Would you want an unqualified person to operate on you at home?
