    So my neighbor has chickens, goats and horses. He had roosters but our other neighbor called him every morning saying "I'm up now your up". I have four roosters and I am not that much farther away from that neighbor. I think she hasn't complained because she's a lot older now and doesn't go outside that often. But today when he was paying me for taking care of his animals he told me that the roosters are getting annoying and thatmy coop area looks like a " ghetto piece of s**t". I told him that I have the right and so forth. He then insisted on me changing the tarps from blue to brown. I told him I won't do that unless you pay me to do it( he's really really rich.) so he gave me $50 more to go buy new tarps. That's not a problem but when he really got on my nerves is when he asked me to move on of my coops which isn't possible cause I would like it to look nice and if I move them it would look like crap. Getting back to the roosters, I have 3 bantams and 1 standard and he says that they wake him up in the morning. My house is closer to the coops than his and my bedroom is the closest room to the coops. I said that I don't here them when I'm in the house, which I don't, so he started complaining. I then listed all the things that you do that piss everybody else of and he got mad and started yelling at me. That's when I just walked away. Btw I'm x5 and he's 54. Idk what to do!!!!

    Also I live in an area where its legal to have as many roosters as you want. I want to be a good neighbor but I also want to not have to move and listen to him. He's a bit of a control freak cause he thinks he can buy himself out of everything. Help

    You should realistically give him the $50.00 back and tell him that your coops can look however they want and that you dont have to change anything. Because simply it is legal to have the roosters. And you should tell your parents that he insulted you and your coop.

    The first post was an hour before this post-how much do you think might have changed in that hour?
