Our new batch of chicks had a roo, and he started crowing young (about 6 weeks). Our neighbor started complaining not long thereafter (we had a roo several months ago that we finally re-homed after months of complaining--not one word of thanks after he was gone). Two weeks ago an Animal Control Notice showed up. I called and they told me they had to schedule a visit to observe the animal, yada yada. I also started putting the cockerel in a dog crate in the garage at night, so there's no way our neighbor can hear him until 7:30 or so when we put him back in the coop. The officer visit finally happened today. What a breath of fresh air! The officer said we live in an agricultural neighborhood where everyone has chickens and roosters, and it's our neighbor who is being unreasonable. Nevertheless, they still have to do their job and log the complaint and the visit. If the complaints keep coming, it could escalate to court, but the officer said even if that happens, it'll be no problem, we'll just go and show how we treat the birds well and it's all allowed in the neighborhood. So while I could now tell the neighbor to pound sand and stop the garage program, I think I'll still try to be a good neighbor. Of course, I also found out the neighbor wants it quiet until 10 am (he has odd hours), but there's no way I'm keeping our roo boxed up that long. So after my wife and I sweated having to deal with the authorities, we have a happy ending!
