I live on 3 acres in the country, where roosters are permitted. I have about 70 hens rescued from egg farm/slaughter, and one single rooster from the animal shelter. My neighbor next door has 5 acres, no animals, and a pristine estate with a few full-time gardeners. She hates animals. (The other neighbors told me this, as did she.) She recently started telling me that that I need to get rid of the rooster because the crowing annoys her. She doesn't say it nicely, either. Only because I care about my other neighbors (not her), I started putting him in a box inside the bathroom at night. What is a reasonable time of morning to let the crowing commence? I decided on 7:30, but I think I might have some retired neighbors (it's hard to say, there are windy dirt roads I've never gone up that probably go to houses) who might sleep later? Discussion with the complaining neighbor is out of the question, as we loathe each other. What do you alll think is a reasonable time to let the rooster out of the box and into the yard -- 7? 7:30? I moved to the country so people would stop bothering me, and I like this rooster so I'm not getting rid of him. Thanks for any suggestions! I don't know if I'm seeing this situation objectively or not.
