My dad hates my rooster because he does what a rooster is supposed to do, he just does it really enthusiastically, and ridiculously often, and for no apparent reason. My rooster is a RIR, he is um how can I say this nicely.... very protective. he also um crows almost nonstop literally, all day every day 24/7. and he is loud. is there a way I might be able to reduce his protectiveness or his crowing nonstop ? He is one year old and I hatched him from an egg. and I would really like to keep him, but dad is leaning towards stew pot, or craigslist. Dad says the only reason that I don't hate him like everyone else is that. you don't have to hear him in the mornings, and you have never been on the receiving end of his "protecting". any thoughts ?
