Can't have crowing? You're in luck. An enterprising, doting backyarder who wanted both roosters and happy neighbors decided to take matters into her own hands. She designed, tested, tweaked, tweaked some more, and finally patented the world's only collar designed to dramatically reduce both the volume and the frequency of crowing. It has been tested and adjusted for maximum, safety, comfort, and effectiveness.
Hundreds of "testers" have tried out these collars-and the results are quietly astounding! Finally, urban and suburban chicken keepers can have a go at keeping your beloved pet roosters!

IT IS NOT A SHOCK COLLAR. The No-Crow Rooster Collar is made from mesh and Velcro, and fully adjusts to fit the rooster perfectly. They are worn with a pinky finger's width of space between the collar and your rooster's neck. Download the instructions. The collar prevents roosters expelling the contents of their air sacs all at once, preventing them from unleashing a full-powered crow. While wearing the collar, they can still vocalize in all their normal ways-but the volume is limited.
The collar is made to bend and flex with the rooster's neck so he can do everything he always does (eat, drink, dust bath, other vocalizations). It isn't tight enough to bother them, and it allows their necks total freedom and flexibility to expand.
Is it guaranteed to work?
The collar is not guaranteed to fully stop your rooster crowing. Instead, it is designed to significantly reduce the volume and frequency of crowing so that ultimately, they're no louder than a hen. Each rooster is different, and each owner is responsible for using the No-Crow Rooster Collar according to the instructions included.
Does it need adjusting?
Yes, from time to time you may need to adjust or reassess the fit of your collar to keep it functioning properly.
Does it irritate their necks?
The No-Crow Rooster Collar is placed over the feathers, and over the course of the day, some of the feathers come free. The roosters who have been tested never have irritated necks because there are always some feathers under the collar, and the collar is worn "soft side in."
Give your boy some time to adjust to having something on his neck by allowing him to wear it loosely the first day. It's a new sensation! After that, begin the adjustment process. We recommend starting the collar loose, then adjusting it a bit tighter every day until you have found the most effective fit. Do watch very, very closely for signs of distress or difficulty breathing. The collar should ultimately be closely fitted, like a belt.
Below are our sizing recommendations by breed. When in doubt, choose a size larger! (You will need 3.5cm to 5cm of "overlap" on the collar to ensure the velcro attaches properly.)
