    We have a buff orpington rooster that should've been a hen but obviously wasn't. We don't want to have the noise in the early morning or throughout the day. Any ideas on how to get rid of him?

    Give him away. Sell him. My mate found a farm who had chickens and chucked them over the fence lol.

    Post an ad online and at the feed store that he's free to a good home if you don't fancy stewing him.
