    I have 8 silkie roosters and 3 hens. The hens are threatening sexual harassment class action. Is there a way to neuter the roosters? They are so beautiful. I've tried giving them away for pets. No one wants them. They have had the occassional fight. But I'm here and can stop before any damage occurrs. I can't kill them. Any suggestions?

    You can have your rooster caponized, yes, but the surgery is very risky and expensive when they are older.
