I will be the first to admit I'm still new to all of this chicken business, but I am learning quick and am admitidly obsessed now!!! I can't have roosters where I live because of the noise ordinance, but I was wondering if anyone else has this ordinance and has successfully kept a rooster? I've also read somewhere about having their voice box removed so they can't crow. Has anyone done this? I have Australorps and they are about 3 weeks old now so I don't even know how many roos I have, I would like to keep one if I could make it work... Just thought I'd check for ideas! Thanks!
