    For over 10 years now I've heard of a procedure that’s being done on roosters to quiet rooster's, I actually think it's a surgical procedure done by a veterinarian that removes their voice box.

    #1 does anyone have any knowledge of this and if so, what’s your personal?

    #2 if someone has knowledge of this, do you know of any veterinarians in the Indiana that are performing this procedure?

    thank you for the link, it was very interesting. $200 is way to expensive & unrealistic to pay for such a procedure. No wonder over 90% of poultry owners don't know anything about it, the word doesn't get around because common sense is people won't pay $200.

    Some knowledgeable poultry owner need to learn how to do this procedure on their own with ether and post a video of it on YouTube.
