Matthew, Lupron works great and is very safe for males. I used it on my Hahns male when we just couldn't break his hormone-related feather destructive behavior and he was starting mutilation. Had to do it two years in a row but this year a month into the FDB season seems much less so just watching and keeping all the other triggers at bay. Lupron is a set of at least 2 shots no more than a couple weeks apart. I would recommend the implant in your case because it works for a much longer period of time than the shot. Or maybe try a shot to see if there is an effect, then go to an implant. I bet there will be a difference. It's hard when some of those behaviors become habits so don't wait too long and I'm wishing for some good results for you.
