I'm sure this has happened to a lot of you, but I'm just so upset. My neighbours are old and have complained and asked me to do something about my rooster. I have a New Hampshire and his name is francis. He's the most docile, beautiful creature and the first chicken I've owned (I thought he was a she) and I've had him since he was 8 weeks so he knows me and loves me too, coming for cuddles and knows his name.... Im just finding it really hard to let go, i have a breeder to take care of him but no one i talk to or know cares about chickens, or seems to, as much as I do so i just feel like I have no one who can relate to how i feel. I know its just a chicken to some people but I feel awful. I've been putting him in a cage at night to stop him crowing as much and I just start crying because its so cruel. Can anyone help me "deal" with this or have ways of their own to help make this easier?
