You won't shut your coop because it's been hot, but the neighbor is supposed to close his windows which are probably open for the same reason? Roosters are not banned where I live, but they do come under the noise ordinances. You don't have to get rid of your rooster, you just have to find a way that he doesn't disturb the neighbors.
That's just it, he's complaining about him crowing in the middle of the day too... He even commented about goat bleating saying he's "tolerating" it and they only bleat during day time.. So, if I keep him in til 7am and in at night, he shouldn't be crowing if he don't see the sun, right? Even so, the coop would muffle the sound a little too..
It is my understanding that noise ordinances typically refer to after hours.. IE after 10pm before whatever am, etc.. Is this correct? If this is the case, does this guy have any legal recourse, etc to push the issue regarding animal sounds during the day time assuming I have the rooster inside til after whatever hour is stated in the noise ordinance?
