    I want to get a rooster but I have neighbors close by and didn't want to disrupt them. I was wondering if a rooster shock collar was safe and if it worked.

    I have never heard of one that worked. Neither with a crow collar. If you have neighbors close by and REALLY want a rooster I would say go for something quiet, I have heart silkie Roo's can be quiet? Maybe do some research ^^

    Surely you don't really mean 'shock' collar?

    A rooster collar works by putting pressure on their throat/vocal chords.....
    ......it does not use an electrical shock like a dog shock collar does.

    Rooster collars can quiet them down some, but not totally.
    There are many risks and it takes a lot of monitoring so they don't choke to death.
