I live in the city where there are no rules concerning roosters, just limits on the number of chickens you can have before you're required to get a permit. A neighbor gave me a chicken that turned out to be a rooster and he has been crowing for about 6 weeks now with no issues. Now one neighbor is basically asking me to get rid of him because he's waking up the neighbor's children whose bedrooms face my property. I can't hold that against him, in fact I told him previously to let me know if it ever became bothersome. So now that we've gotten to that point, I have to admit that I am very sad about it. I know of a good home to take him to, but I am wondering how that will affect him. He's just gotten comfortable with my hens and isn't too comfortable with people. Ever since I got chickens this past spring, I've been consumed with giving them the best life and learning all I can about them. Can anyone ease my crazy chicken mind and tell me that he will be fine when he goes to his new home? PS I might try crating him in the garage at night and see if that quiets him any, in an attempt to keep him.
