    I've personally not heard of doing that - not sure how or why it would work. You might post your question in the link below - maybe someone there can give you some advice. You also might do a search in BYC search bar - type in "noisy" or "loud" and "rooster" and see what come up. Good luck to you!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG] - it is very hard to keep a rooster quiet ( I would even say impossible)
