    Sympathize with the nasty comments!

    I forgot, my $125 echo was partially subsidized by the Irish Wolfhound Foundation, they even do eight year olds and older completely free!

    Not directly related to dog limits, but I just got back from a trip to our regional specialty in PA, where we stayed at a Holiday Inn. They had a laundry cart full of clean old sheets when you...

    I have Irish Wolfhounds, and their primary job of course is to hold down the couches and be fantastic companions and family members. If they are good enough in terms of conformation, I show them at...

    Also, estrogen and testosterone play a role in the closure of the long bones. If removed prior to this, the long bones continue to grow, and the dog can end up with very long legs; not so noticeably...

    There have been studies in several breeds, Rotties, Goldens, Labs, and Vizlas, with similar results, although there are some breed differences. Here is a quote from the study on Goldens:

    Yes they can eat whatever they want at this stage!

    Only thing to watch with liver is loose stools.

    Beef, pork, and lamb liver is also usually well received!

    OP I have used the ones you linked to (I think thy were called "Chinook" back when I bought them) and they worked well.

    Of course there is nothing wrong with killing and eating a problematic rooster (at least, in my book).

    But, if you visit these chicken forums, or know anybody that has "pet" chickens, they don't...

    The hormone implants were done frequently years ago, but were discontinued due to concerns about human health effects. They were estrogen, there may be some reason to use progesterone, instead, but...

    I couldn't agree more!

    The $30 was actually from a vet, who I would assume would not do surgery without anesthesia. Probably a chemical castration via hormone implant.

    I must admit, I could not resist doing a quick Google search for "behavior in castrated adult rooster".

    I was surprised at the lack of good info! No doubt if I went to a library at a university...

    OP, perhaps your friend might research whether castration in adult roosters might be likely to eliminate sexual and aggressive behavior to hens. Perhaps her local vet school or extension service...
