Please check your zoning ordinances for further information.-------------- Roosters are not specifically prohibited--it is a noise ordinace which supercedes all other ordinances. You are not allowed to have \\\"male poultry which is capable of making vocal blahblah which creates a disturbance\\\". So if he doesn\\\'t disturb anyone, more specifically, no one complains: it is legal to have roos.-------------------- The max quantity of chickens is a TOTAL of 20 birds and rodents, combined. So 15 chooks, 5 rats.
