The thing is that I did the research and looked at the city ordinances and bylaws and it absolutely does not state that we cannot have roosters. It does state that we can have up to 10 chickens on Parcels less than five acres. When I stated this to him his response was that chicken's mint girls and not roosters. I said no female chickens or hens and boys are roosters however they are both chickens. He said well that's how it's been interpreted. He then said that it would also be under the nuisance Horsham regarding the noise. The thing is that we have silkie roosters and they are extremely gentle and do not grow constantly nor are they any louder than any of the dogs or traffic from the highway above us. We have approximately 2 acres and it will cost nearly $400 to put in an appeal. Do I have any recourse for the fact that he says that's just the way it's interpreted in the way it is?
