I've got a very sweet little young silkie roo who was raised up from an egg, but I'm not allowed roosters where I am. Has anyone had any luck with hiding roosters? I've heard of folks taking them in the house at night, or putting them in lightproof boxes to keep them from crowing in the morning and ratting you out, but does it really work? He hasn't started crowing yet, but I am hoping to maybe let him get it out of his system in the garage ("Oh, that? It's my rooster-sound generator. It's motion activated. Great, isn't it?") or the like, then letting him into the run for the day. Sigh, why did he have to turn out to be one of my favorites?
