My neighbor is threatening us also. They said if we have a roo that they will send their dog over to eat our chickens. She told the neighbor across the street(they got chicks too) that if they hear a rooster from either of our houses she is calling the police. We are within our legal rights to keep a rooster. Although, my dh and I have no plans keeping any, but the neighbor across the street does have one in her flock.
