I nead to know the best way to get my rooster to stop crowing
He's a rooster. Crowing is what they do. If you need to keep him quiet at night/ early in the morning, then you can bring him inside and put him in a kennel covered with blackout shades. Other than that,
I think you may know the answer. The only way you wont hear him anymore is either have him for dinner or give him away,sorry to say. Last year I got my chicks and ended up with 4 White Rock roosters. Noisy,mean,stupid eating machines. I had the runt pass away and gave two to a rooster orphanage($10 donation for each) and kept one. I wanted to process the ones I gave away for all the food they consumed but was out-voted. The one I kept is a little noisy but he lets you know when something is amiss outside.
Roosters crow - that's what they do. Rehome him (he'll still crow, but you won't hear it) or eat him. Even if you take him in at night and keep him in total darkness - roosters don't just crow in the early morning hours. When he's back outside he'll still crow.
Quote:From many years around chickens, this seems like an impossible task. To get rid of the crowing, you'll have to get rid of the rooster. If it's a problem of him crowing too early in the morning, you could probably solve that by putting him somewhere where he won't see any sun or lights, but once he gets back into daylight, there will definitely be some amount of crowing.
I will tyr puting him ina dog cage and cover it with black fabrick will that work ?
Quote:it'll work as long as you keep him in the covered cage.
unless he hears something, then he'll still crow. try a sound-proof, light proof cage.
he's gonna crow. that's his job. you may as well be asking "how can i keep my tornado from blowing things around?" you can't.
is he bothering the neighbors, or is the crowing just bugging you? regardless, the only way to shut a rooster up is to slow cook him in a crock-pot for several hours.
He does bother my neighbors and I won't get rid of him but my neighbors don't won't to here him at all but I am not going to wory about the day just the night what if I put a ruler hand on his beak will it work
