Whenever my rooster gets to loud I spread scratch and BOSS around the run. This keeps him entertained and quiet for a while. What else can I give him and the hens. I've tried cabbage hanging from a string. I only do this on my day off or weekends. I think he has figured out my work schedule. The run is 200sq feet. I only let them freerange when I'm home as we have hawks. Is their such a thing as Rooster toys? Other then the hens, I mean. If you haven't figured this out yet We are not realy allowed Roosters in this hood. No one has complained yet and I want to keep it that way. He is a very sweet boy.
