We had a wild rooster decide to move in with us in our very very uptight residential neighborhood. As animal lovers we have been taking care of him, and he is doing a great job helping us with our soil (We will putting in a green house soon) "Roo" crows all day and night and it is driving the neighbors crazy. I have found him staring into a mirror we have on the patio on occasion and that keeps him quieter. Also when I talk to him he quiets down. We are looking into the city ordinances in our area to decide what to do with roo. We want to keep him but also keep our neighbors happy as well. So the question is: If we get roo a companion will he crow less? Or will we end up with noisy birds and start a war on our street? None of us have ever raised a chicken. Roo is an American bantam game rooster. He has great pipes. You can hear him from across the canyon. Also there are neighborhood raccoons that visit our property at night and a few hawks that were circling him last week. Any advice would be helpful.
