LA passes law limiting roosters to 1 per household
Breitbart ^ | September 23, 2009 | AP

Posted on 09/23/2009 11:21:54 AM PDT by craum

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 that—with few exceptions—allows 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.

Surprised this one hasn't made the rounds yet. The comments about illegals and the 3rd-worldization of LA almost write themselves...

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?

Not much.

Los Angeles (city and county) have had large peafowl wandering around long before the current spate of chicken people came along.

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.

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...

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 is one way to get a chicken in every pot. Anyone for chicken enchiladas?

My recipe:

For the carne el pollo (chicken meat):

2-1/2 cups shredded chicken
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf minced
2 teaspoons cumin
1-1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon minced Serrano pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 green bell pepper chopped
1 cup onion minced
2 green onions chopped

Other ingredients:
1/2 cup olives sliced
1 tomato sliced thin
7 burrito sized flour tortillas
10 oz can Old El Paso enchilada sauce
2 cups medium cheddar cheese grated
Peanut oil for frying

Method:

Put enchilada sauce in fry pan on low heat.
Start peanut oil in another fry pan to 350 degrees.
Fry both sides of tortillas in oil, using fork to deflate bubbles. Dip fried tortillas in enchilada sauce and stack in tray.
Put chicken ingredients in tortilla, fold in sides and roll into burrito type tortillas into baking pan.
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.

Serve with sour cream, your favorite guacamole sauce, and more chopped green onions.

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.

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.

USAF vet shout out. Live in fame or go down in flame.

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’.”

They were something else. I couldn't believe they were opening for Megadeath. A couple years later and Megadeath would have given their eyeteeth to open for THEM.

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?
