it is a story. My next door neighbors wrote in to the local newspaper complaining about my rooster crowing. So being the good neighbor, I rehomed rooster. I only have hens now. The other day I was out refilling their feeder and I heard a 'sound'. Did I really hear what I thought I heard? I walked over to my property line, looked over the neighbor's fence through the other back yards and waited. Yep. I heard it again. A young rooster trying out his crow. LOL! Now the neighbor that complained about my rooster crowing have a crowing rooster on the OTHER side cause those neighbors got some chickens. I'm not so worried now if one of my pullets grows up to be a he.
