    Since my neighbor has killed some of my chickens because he doesn't like them, and made a full blown pest of himself, I guess this post belongs here. I noticed a gate hanger this morning telling me to call animal control "immediately regarding my roosters" so I did. The said there was a complaint about me having too many roosters. Chuck said "You know, there is a limit of how many roosters you can have and it goes with the size of your lot." I asked him how many rooster was I allowed to have. He said "How big is your lot?" Now, since we have gone round a few times with my neighbor making bogus complaints on my other animals, I just let the line go silent until he answered his own question. He knows very good and well how big my lot is. After about forty five seconds, he realizes I am not playing the game, and says "Oh, I think I have that information somewhere... Your lot is X amt of square feet. According to code you are only allowed thirteen roosters for that size of lot." "Well, that is good to know, since I only have eight. That makes four more I can get, right?" He proceeds to ask if he can come count the roosters, which I said come on over. He said I am busy, I will be there in an hour. So during that hour I made sure to go buy myself another rooster to celebrate the fact that I can have more, and when he came over and counted, I told him to tell my neghbor that I will be adding another rooster with every bogus complaint he files. Good day. (well, that, plus a bunch of colorful language.) So... woo hoo! I still can have four more roosters if I need to! What a great visit!

    I know the sense of defiance won't resonate with everyone, but I love to see a smug fly in the ointment! [​IMG]

    And make sure to mention to your neighbor and animal control that your next rooster will be a Denizli longcrower, heck buy 2-3 of them or four and put them as close to your neighbor as you can.

    Guess what else? If I put up a solid wood fence along about a twenty foot area, I can keep them right up against the fence if I want to and the neighbor can pound sand. I am done, you hear me? DONE with my neighbor and his whining. He has noisy dogs, mules, power equipment and has never once called his dogs off from pounding the fence and breaking the boards. I plan to build that wooden fence inside my chain link fence and paint the side toward him full of chickens, bawk! A-doodle DOO! and buk buk buk, eggs, corn cobs, scarecrows and anything else I want, maybe even a scarecrow with a plumbers crack facing his side. Sooner or later he will learn to leave me alone.
