I am a New Girl in the world of Chickenhood. I am super excited. I have done much research and can not wait for two more weeks when I get my chicks. I have a cpl questions on roosters. I know their job is to protect and they tend to have 'tudes'. I have 4 kids, and a cat. I also live in the middle of the city... Here are a couple of things I am looking into. #1 Is there such thing as a more quiet rooster? #2 Are there roosters that are known for being more people friendly or trainable? These seem like crazy questions since everyone knows the roosters talk and talk loud. And the main purpose I need a roo is to protect my gals, since I can't have a dog (hubby's request) Does anyone have any good advice on this? One more question Has anyone been reported for the noise their Roo makes? (@ City Folk) If it is legal to have a Roo, can the law make me get rid of mine for making noise? I don't have any chicks yet, want to do a bit more research before I make my decisions.
