Hi BGMatt, glad to meet another B.G. resident here.
We really like to keep our rooster so I tried to contact the city of Battle Ground for more information and received the below email. We are not in an HOA, still we will try to see if the No Crow Velcro will help reduce our rooster noise level once he start crowing.
That is an interesting fun fact about the word "Rooster".
Thank you everyone for your input about chicken roost. Some of our hens just doesn't seem to roost.
Email from Code Compliance Officer with the City of Battle Ground:
Battle Ground Municipal Code title 6 deals with Animals. Currently, Chickens are allowed within the city limits of Battle Ground. The code does not state a limit for the number of Chickens you can have but I would recommend that if you have a small lot you have fewer chickens than on a larger lot. BGMC 6.10.185 states that Roosters are not allowed within city limits of Battle Ground.
