So, I have read and re-read my zoning rules and I can find nothing that says I can not keep chickens or a rooster. But I found out I will be receiving a call from the zoning person because she received two complaints about my roosters being too loud.
I have overlooked a lot of things over the years: delapated houses, junk in yards, unmowed yards, endlessly barking dogs, roaring motorcycles, thieving children stealing tools and gas, snowmobiles running through front yard, dogs pooping in my yard... never complained. Figured just to let it be as they are my neighbors. And now I have to deal with this.... grrr....
I am being told it wakes them up, problem is that are all locked away from dusk to about 7:15. Later on the weekends. You can not even hear the roosters past first two houses when locked up.
If nothing is in zoning book, can they make you get rid of them? I just purchased an incubator, now it will be useless.
I am worried. And ticked. Most my neighbors like the chickens. I have been told some like the roosters too, one being the house across the street. Reminds him of when he was young.
Just worried about what zoning will say. First I am asking her where does it say I can not keep chickens, because I can not find it in the book.
You know...I am not giving my eggs away anymore...or letting little neighbor boys "collect" eggs. They can just stay away. maybe I will get a goose to bite everyone in the butt.
