    Mushed bananas, cooked carrot mush, cooked potato mush, mushed strawberries maybe... And he MIGHT have these symptoms if he has a blockage:

    Unable to stand or refusing

    Not wanting to eat or drink

    Un-activeness

    Off colored comb or wattle

    ok, either this is a joke or " THE " WTH post of the week here .
    Understand this ...if the bird eats too many sock pieces then he very well could end up with blockages in his intestines , that is.... get impacted.
    It could die from this blockage, just trust us on this one.

    If you have to resort to putting a sock on a bird to stop it from crowing then find another home for the bird where the crowing won't be a problem.
    If this is a joke ( am leaning toward it prob. being so ) then quit trying to pull the wool ( sock) over people's heads.
    If you're really serious then you need to find an alternative "humane" means to end the crowing problem for what you're doing ( if you really are ) is cruel , it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out if you can't catch it to take the sock off then it can't eat or drink with the sock on.

    If it's not a joke you need to rehome your rooster. Roosters crow, it's how they warn you, talk to their flock, etc. It's their job. I have a rooster and I quite enjoy his crowing most of the time, that 1% of the time I find it annoying it's me not him. But I take his crow very seriously and investigate to see if any problems are going on. He has alerted me to issues and I appreciate that.

    It's simple, do NOT put a sock on a rooster. Do NOT let him eat it, period.

    how old are you? maybe you can volunteer at a veterinarian office that treats farm animals, or maybe a local farm, that way you can learn a lot about your own chickens and better take care of them.

    He probably got the idea to use a sock right here on BYC. There a couple of discussions that include using baby socks on roosters.[​IMG]
