LOS ANGELES (AP) - The chickens have come home to roost for Los Angeles city dwellers who keep roosters. The City Council on Tuesday passed an ordinance thatwith few exceptionsallows only one rooster per property. It was spurred by complaints over noise and hygiene and concerns over illegal cockfighting. Janice Hahn, who authored the bill, says it will give residents of her district some peace and quiet. Neighborhoods from the harbor to the San Fernando Valley are sometimes annoyed by concerts from crowing roosters. Real estate developer Michael Mekeel says tenants of his Panorama City development have had to turn up their TVs and wear earplugs. The law takes effect in November and carries fines of up to $250.

Interesting angle that as an “outsider” I hadn’t considered. Still, the optics are undeniable. The overall situation in LA makes an otherwise simple article like this stand out.
I grew up in L.A. County (El Monte) in the ‘60’s. We always had chickens. Of course, there was a little more elbow room back then.
This follows BO’s “A chicken in every pot” speech.....
“...well, my wattles show and my tailfeathers droop a bit but I can still outcrow anything in the barnyard...”
This will cause major problems in East L.A.
‘Hahn’ means chicken. How appropriate.
Maybe the people will cross back over the border...
thinking that the U.S. with all it’s mandates and
infringements on our life is not such a great place
The neighbors don't notice them if they only come in through your back door ;-)

Big dif...if you live next door to them.
Well, ya’ll gotta realize that if a liberal tree-hugger goes “back to nature” they’re gonna order a dozen roosters and a dozen hens..........just to make sure there’s equality in the barnyard doncha know.
Reminds me of when a SF Bay area Water Control Board member wanted to require that the city water system maintain a PH of zero.....ah, science as taught in the publik skools.
Dang! Forum search on “rooster” (at 2pm EST) didn’t bring it up... Sorry gang.
Not much. We have two(maybe three) roosters, and they are LOUD. My wife likes the roosters because they actually protect the chickens from predators. She doesn't like the guinea hens either, but they gobble up the ticks.
Ah yes. Another stupid law that will never be enforced. Well done, idiots. Well done.
