    I've had it for 13 weeks along with 2 chickens. Today I found a note on my door asking me to get rid of my rooster. Are there any loopholes to this or any places I should donate the rooster? I know I'll miss him and I don't want him to be eaten. :(

    I found a farm for my two roosters. You just have to look around, I found mine a home in less than a day.

    Best of luck,

    Who posted the note? If it was LE or zoning, make them quote the law you are violating. They don't normally ask, they order. Kind of makes me think it was a neighbor.

    It was a neighbor. They told me to look at the city code for animals and I did. Now I don't know what to do with the rooster.

    Oh, gosh, no. They're not going to eat them! They wanted them as pets because they sell fertilised eggs for people to buy and hatch.

    My mother doesn't consider them as pets. She hates all animals in general. Idk. Everybody I know wants to eat him. D:

    I think I'll have to put him down. His leg is broken and he can barely move. It's been 5 great months and I'll truly miss him.:(

    Were I you, I would tell the neighbor to stay off your property.
