My neighbor gifted me a Light Brahma rooster. I had not planned on owning a rooster, but it was a gift. Man, is he ever LOUD! Not wanting to attract negativity from certain neighbors, I researched Google for "How to make a rooster stop crowing" and to my surprise, yes, there are ways to accomplish this. There were several NoCrow collar options. Mind you, they do not guarantee that your rooster will no longer crow, but the sound will be much quieter. Since I don't have a ton of money and didn't want to wait 5-10 days for a package to arrive in the mail, I drove to my local fabric store (Joann's) to look at Velcro products. I found just the right item. I cut enough of the Velcro Brand One-Wrap to fit comfortably on the rooster's neck, used scissors to round the 4 corners, and put the collar loosely on the rooster. He wasn't sure what had just happened and thought about pecking at the collar but I grabbed hold of one of the hens and when the hen started squawking loudly, the rooster forgot about the collar and came to see if the hen was okay. After about an hour I readjusted the collar to make it a bit tighter. Then I put the tether and leash on the rooster and took him for a short walk. One more time I tightened the collar. The point is to have it tight enough to restrict the air that created the loud crowing but not so tight to hurt the bird. One more walk on the leash for a photo op. So, the DIY NoCrow collar worked for me. He did not crow at all during the night. His first audible crow happened at 5:15 am and it was quiet enough for me. I'll leave the collar as is for now and may try to tighten it one more time in a few days. There are many people selling NoCrow collars so you can feel confident that they do work to at least reduce the volume.
