    What should I do now? They are like pets to me, they come to me and feed off my hands. I raised them from chicks. I don't think I can cook them. What to do?

    I guess the answer depends on whether or not it is legal for you to have chickens and/or roosters where you live. If you are within your rights to have a rooster then the neighbor might just have to deal with it, although I would try to help the situation as much as possible.

    If you are not allowed roosters where you live then you will probably have to try to find a home for him.

    Sell him for $10 on Craigslist. That will deter someone from eating him, cheaper at a grocery store.....

    If he is crowing too early and that is their complaint, you can put curtains up in the coop and put him out later in the day (make sure they have food and water in the coop).
