I have seen a lot of threads about people wanting to neuter a rooster because they're not allowed to have them or wanting to change a rooster from being a rooster so that they can keep them... I guess I want to vent today There are a lot of concerns about chicks hatching out of eggs when you have a rooster. I have two roosters and I have never had a chick hatch without me knowing. The only way you can get a chick out of an egg is if you incubate it or allow a broody to sit on it! There has to be perfect conditions for a chick to grow in an egg. Why are people getting straight runs when they know that they could get cockerels, but don't have a plan to get rid of them? Why aren't people buying point of lay pullets (POL) or hens if they are not allowed roosters/cockerels? Neutering a rooster/cockerel or trying to make a rooster not a rooster (using collars or other means) will never work and can injure them! If you are not allowed to have a rooster/cockerel nothing will change the fact that it's a rooster/cockerel! If you do not have a plan to get rid of cockerels, don't buy them! If you cannot rehome them, eat them, or find a solution... DONT BUY THEM! Don't buy an animal and try to change what that animal is because it will never work! You cannot buy a dog and convince it that it's a cat! You cannot disguise a dog as a cat! You cannot raise a rooster/cockerel and make it think that it's a hen! You cannot disguise a rooster/cockerel as a hen, it will always be a rooster/cockerel! Roosters/Cockerels will always have some sort of aggressiveness, sexual behaviors, spurs, ect... You cannot change that! If you do not like how a rooster/cockerel is, do not own one or have potential to get one! People who keep animals that they are not supposed to ruin it for others!
