    I agree -- you did what you thought was best. Don't beat yourself up over it. We learn from our misfortunes.

    My 7 month old bantam rooster died suddenly today. I am heartbroken. He was the male among 4 chicks and I live in an area that does not allow roosters. I spent over a month getting the collar perfect. It was soft and padded. I took him in the house at night so I could monitor his crowing/status/tolerance. I came home from work today and fed them. He was fine and active. About an hour later he was dead, still mildly warm, on his back, limp with his eyes closed. No breathing or heart rate. His mouth had some sticky saliva and crumble in it, but I did not note any issues in his throat/crop or any mass or food at or around the collar. I sadly said good bye and buried him. I will forever feel guilty and wonder if the rooster collar was the culprit or if he suffered a heart or liver issue unrelated. I feel sad and guilty as I love all of my animals dearly.....

    Sorry for both of your losses, and thanks for warning others of possible deaths because of 'no crow' collars.

    I am sorry you lost him!

    I have tried keeping roosters here but it does not work out. The City does not allow them and I keep having to comply with the code. Now I try to give them away or process them for dinner.

    My advice is to not keep roosters if they are not allowed. It is very sad when they have to go away

    Thanks for sharing your experience, I'd considered getting some myself but hadn't considered the possible repercussions. So sorry for your loss.
