My boyfriend and I have been wondering why we can't have a rooster in our neighborhood, obviously because of noise, but people can have loud dogs. It is 2:26 am right now, and there is a certain dog that just howls all night. And I mean aaallllllll night. It's starting to get old. Other people have dogs that just constantly bark all day and into the evening as well. Which is pretty annoying. I know there's a person in our neighborhood that has roosters, we can hear them crowing sometimes, but we think they live in a more secluded area, whereas we have neighbors all around us. I bet that we could get away with a rooster if we really wanted to, but we also have more hens than allowed, so we don't really want to draw unwanted attention to us. But the fact of the matter is, we're not supposed to have them, but people can have extremely loud and obnoxious dogs. Not only that, they get out and run everywhere, which is also aggravating. We have a big heavy duty dog kennel set up for our run (so animals can't bend the bars/break in) and we have the top covered. So that means my chickens don't get out unless I let them out. When they are out, they stay in our yard. It just annoys me sometimes. Sorry for ranting.
