    Earlier today, I was going for a walk with my kids and we walked by a house that I knew had a rooster in the yard. I used to have 10+ hens and roosters in my yard but the city told me to get rid of them all and long story short, they let me keep 3 hens.

    Anywho, I pointed out to my kids that they had a rooster, and they went behind their house to get a better look. My kids started yelling that they had a bunch of roosters there, so I had to go look.

    Well the one rooster that I see sometimes was chained by his leg to the fence. They had probably about 5 more roosters and hens in cages 2 together, and the others were in cages by themselves.

    They had no food and no water and I am pretty sure that they are used for bad business. They all looked like american game fowl.

    I am really stuck on what to do.

    Do you think that animal services would rehome them or kill them??

    Quote:I raised a big fuss over them telling me to get rid of my chickens, when I told them about how many houses I know of they said they were all grandfathered. [​IMG]

    I do think that I will call and see what they say. I totally want to be anonymous though, I don't want to raise any attention to mine. (they never gave me a permit but they were supposed to, but I think they just gave up and let me have my way)

    thanks everyone for the help, I really hope the city can do something about them soon. If this would have happened a few years ago, all of them would be in my backyard right now, lol. I just hate when people are neglectful to animals.
