Can you tell me the name of the vet and the number ASAP!I am with the OP on this one. There is no money in it is why vets don't do it...I would think. Who is going to pay $300 to decrow a roo they paid $5 for as a chick? Not many. I have 2 roosters...rarer types...Svart Hona and Serama---and have fairly close neighbors. I AM allowed to have roosters here, BUT---for my neighbors consideration...would gladly pay $300 a bird to have it done, BUT---no vets do it in Ohio. Darn. The procedure is not 100% successful either. So..my only option for a more quiet rooster is to use the collars. Nice...I'll just choke my bird to death..NOT. Tried the collars, they are not for my birds. Too dangerous. SO---because I'd decrow my roosters surgically...and not willing to use a collar...am I a bad chicken owner??
