So far the rooster is quiet and the collar seems to be working. He was pecking and scratching at it the first day. He is behaving normal now, but every now and then he fluffs his feathers out like a wet dog removing water.

I will check the tightness of the collar as he grows bigger. I used velcrow cable strap as it is the same thing as rooster collar, except 10 times cheaper.

Good...but there’s really no need for the collar if he isn’t even crowing yet.

Yeah it seems like you are doing every ting right, bnut if he is not crowing then the collar is just an unnecessary burden.
