    Either he takes a five-minute break from all that crowing, or so help me...

    A dumpling bath effectively silences crowing and also satisfies your hunger.

    Is he young? Seems to me that mine always crow a lot more when they're young and have just found their voice and are showing off for each other.

    rhandi's rid of that rowdy rooster soup...


    1. catch said rooster and do 'the do'
    2. when rooster looks like food, put in pot, cover with water. bring to boil. simmer about 1 hour.
    3. and onion, celery and carrots all chopped in chunks. simmer until meat starts falling off bone.
    4. drain through colander to get all bones and other weird items OUT of soup. save the broth...i know, duh!
    5. put all (but weird stuff and bones) back in pot.
    6. add noodles or dumplings or rice or potatoes or another rowdy rooster at this point.
    7. simmer until all that junk is soft
    8. add salt, pepper and rosemary to taste


    oh yeah, roosters is good eatin'![​IMG]

    ETA save the broth...

    Quote:Yep, he's about 20 weeks now. Also, he hasn't started mating yet and the hens haven't begun laying. Hopefully he'll do what yours did and slow down eventually. I did have seven roosters and three hens. I kept one rooster and gave the others away. He's a realllllly pretty dark-blue Orpington. If he LIVES, he's going to be BIG.

    it's super good with homemade egg noodles....

    2 cups flour
    1 tsp salt
    4 eggs


    mix dry ingredients and make a well. add eggs. mix together and then knead onto lightly floured surface.
    roll out thin and cut into strips. let sit on cutting board or whatever you have for an hour or so. add to the rooster soup.

    oh yeah...i'm eyeballing my meaties right now....
