I have a beautiful 7 month old Rhodebar Rooster. His name is Ricky. He was one of 3 that I hatched and he survived fowl pox and the Hawk that got my other two babies. He was recently in a feral fox mouth and released once I screamed and the fox dropped him and ran off. My point is....I want to keep Ricky. I am not interested in fertile eggs. I want him as my pet Ricky Rooster. I have 11 hens that he protected from the fox that he lives with. They are all my pets. All of them are named.He is a sweet Rooster. My issue is he crows all night long. ALL NIGHT. I do not mind it. I have a daughter however who is going crazy over it. My neighbors have not said anything but I keep waiting for that knock on the door. I recently bought the crow collar which did not work and I am currently unable to locate due to it is no longer on his neck. I live in Louisiana and have called vets and LSU vet school. I was looking for a "fixer". I read that if you are able to neuter a rooster it minimizes the crowing. I looked into this due to I am not interested in fertile eggs, I am interested in him. I need help. Does a fixer exist? Can you safely do this to a Rooster? I really need assistance with this one. There are no local chicken people like myself to turn to. There are chicken people however they are just chickens to the people I know and I need other than put him in a pot.
