Yes I have a little BR roo chick, I know I don't have to have one but I would feel better having one. We have cats in the area and the occasional fox, plus hawks every now and then so I would like him for body guard duties.

Hello all! I'm from Lexington, NC but I'm really closer to Welcome we just have a Lexington address, I'm looking in to keeping 8-9 chickens but I don't want them to be taken away! I live in a neighborhood with one neighbor pretty close by and the other one about an acre and a half away. The far away neighbor knows about my chicken plans and seems supportive, even offering to help me build the coop. The other neighbor has no clue. I don't think either one would seriously complain to authorities, but I am concerned about my roo changing that. I will only be keeping one so maybe the crowing won't be so bad but I don't want to have my chickens taken away. Do you think my rooster may cause problems for me?
Since you live in the county, not in the Lexington city limits, you have nothing to worry about. You can have as many roosters as you'd want but not have to worry about the authorities. Your neighbors may not like it but unless you live in an HOA, they wouldn't have any real recourse.
BTW, welcome, Neighbor. I'm in Tyro.
