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.

But I'll get things started with:
And how many burros?
Not to rain on your parade or anything, but...
What's the difference between one rooster and twelve roosters at 5:30 AM?
It's all the same thing ~ a crowing peacock or a crowing rooster ~ lots of noise.
Not likely Beverly Hills types will give up the peacocks.
It's a Souvrn' California thing ~ not generally applicable elsewhere.
So only one chicken per house, per block, could still be 12 or more roosters. And THIS is supposed to ‘reduce noise’?
I love how stupid liberals are. You protect the very illegals that cause you problems.
Just pump the hens full of steroids and let them fight.
Janice Hahn, who authored the bill
If you speak any German, that name was just funny in this article.
I notice there is still no limit on the number of jack asses per house.
Them darned Mexicans. They turn back yards and aparment balconies (along with one of the rooms) into farmyards where every they live.
Beware if you live in an aparment beneath theirs. If you see the cieling starting to leak, don’t sit under it. There’s probably 10 tons of topsoil above you and they have overwatered their garden...
If you ask me, L.A.’s had a problem with too many cocks for quite some time.
“John Wayne’s not dead, hes frozen, and as soon as we find a cure for cancer were gonna thaw out the duke and hes gonna be pretty pissedoff. You know why? Have you ever taken a cold shower, well multiply that by 15 million times. Thats how pissed off the dukes gonna be!”
Heh. Can you think of any other reasons why The Duke might be pissoff right now?
“Not to rain on your parade or anything, but...

The difference is you have idiot city slickers not knowing what they’re doing...
Third. World. Hell. Hole. The transformation is complete.
typical Marxist campaign rhetoric....a Chicken in Every Pot....but no more than one...
they’ll get Jorge’s chicken when they pry it from his cold,undocumented hands.
guess the cockfighting tournaments go quicker if they are single elimination...
Would you believe in Massachusetts, tenants had to be told...
Do not keep chickens in the kitchen cupboards (doors removed, replaced with chicken wire).
Do not cook in the tub (when they were cast iron).
Do not hang chickens from the clothesline (by their legs, for slaughter).
It’s been over 20 years since I’ve heard of it happening though.
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 ;-)
Walking tall, machine-gun man
They spit on me in my homeland

Lay out tortillas with wise in pan. Cover with remaining enchilada sauce. Layer with cheese, tomatoes and olives. Put in 350 degree oven until bubbly.

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.
That guy did both.
Met him in Zarbruken Germany when he was opening for “Megadeath” while I was in the USAF.
Not the most eloquent dude off the cuff...
“wow, you guys speak English.”
“Of course we do, were American!”
“you came all that way for the concert?”
“Nope, were here to occupy Germany; you know ‘either at your feet or at your throat’.”
Holla back at ya bro!
Never got a chance to see them in concert. I hear they are touring again. Reminds me of my High School days...
The alternative scene was great in the 90’s...
The worst pairing of all time just HAD to be “the Jimi Hendrix Experience” opening for “the Monkeys”. How could an actor with a little musical training take the stage after THAT?
The White House already has one bantum rooster running around with his tail feathers up and crowing about himself all the time.
Thass Lost Angelees faw ya. Makin' the world---ah say, makin' the world safe from rampant chickenry . . . !
How about some cap and trade. They can have my rooster for a Thanksgiving Turkey.
A racist law if I ever saw one.
Well that goes without saying! Fortunately the word has lost all meaning in a present-Obama America.
