Is anyone here have chicken in the city? Does your neighbor complains?
We live in the city so we chose hens but ended up with a rooster anyways, the neighbors have never complained but we’d happily rehome him if they ever did. There’s another rooster nearby so I’m guessing everyone’s used to them crowing but I still feel guilty on days where he crows earlier than usual.

I try not to go against the poultry regulations but just FYI City of Mesa won't even respond to burglaries under $1000. So unless your in a hi-class area (I'm not) then I doubt the City or Animal Control will show up anytime soon. I hear roosters and have seen guineas in my NW Mesa neighborhood. Dogs are more annoying with loud obnoxious barking, also loose dogs (which Animal Control rarely will come out to get unless you already have it contained for them or unless it is actively attacking someone - they actually told me this after I had to run home from a loose dog coming after me and my dog).

Thanks this make me feel a little better because these chickens are my pet and I'm worried the city might show up and tell me to get rid of them . I would be devastated.

Yes, and if the dog was attacking a person, the person could be dead by the time that they show up.

I’ve seen some no crow collars but I’m too doubtful to try them out. Unfortunately, we’d probably have to cull our rooster if the city ever got involved and we couldn’t rehome.

We need to be prepared to cross that bridge if we come to it. For now I just try to abide by the regulations and make nice with neighbors whenever possible.
