Has anyone tried this? I hate to admit it but I giggle each time the rooster goes "squawk" but he seems to be able to do everything else an unencumbered rooster would do.

Looks to be a far better life than a soup pot, so I must say "brilliant"!

My three young cockerels have got a temporary reprieve, as we have given them collars just like this.  The smallest bantam has been the hardest to get fitted right, but the two big boys are really muted (they don't sound raspy like the rooster in the video, but more like doves cooing).  They still make normal clucking and alarm noises, still eat and drink normally and are still exhibiting normal behavior:  dust baths, grazing, scratching, (attempting at) mating if they can catch an adult hen unawares.  They've had the collars for a couple days now and aren't pecking at them or trying to get them off anymore.  I hope they keep working.  We can't have crowing roosters because of our neighbors.

We'll probably still kill and eat them (or possibly only two of them), but maybe they'll get to grow up a bit more and put on some meat.  That is, if the collars continue to work and don't kill them, which according to the Amazon reviews, can happen... 
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
