A representative from the Homeowner's Association where I live came to my home today and told me they could shut off my water if I did not remove the Serama chickens (which are technically exotic birds, such as a parrot I would think) from my property. I have never had a complaint before this. I have owned this property for over twelve years, and nobody on this cul de sac obeys the rules 100%. We have new neighbors who yell constantly at their (5) small dogs to come in the house. They do not walk them and they are allowed off leash regardless of their property not being fenced. I believe they filed a complaint the day after their dog was hit and killed by a car because they now have 4 dogs instead of 5 (which is against the rules). I would think that the right to drinking water would supercede a rule about "livestock", which was put in place to make the neighborhood more aesthetically pleasing. I keep the roosters inside at night so they do not wake my neighbors. There is much, much more obnoxious noise coming from next door than my small property and birds.
