Could use some advice regarding neighbor's rooster


.22 long rifle, a suppressor and a flashlight should do it.

Tell him the rooster goes and you will be fine with the chickens .

At least give him a chance to correct things before the police are involved. It's the right way to treat this---
Pssst Mike...

If the rooster goes..after these old biddies there won't be anymore chickens.. if you catch my meaning..

.problem solved??

I think after a while you will learn to block the noise, just as city people block fire engines and honking car..
Like Steven says..Maybe you can get some fresh eggs out of the bargain.
I guess I'm "that guy" too then. I don't care if I'd been there one day...as soon as I checked that it was indeed against ordinance...I may try to talk to him face to face, ONCE....then I'd make it the city's problem.

I agree with Mike. Have a talk with the guy/lady who owns the rooster. If it were me, I'd appreciate someone doing that instead of reporting me.

I get the feeling that you're going to find that plenty of other people have already complained anyway. We have a neighbor about 3 blocks away who has a rooster or two and we hear the crowing this far away. The sound carries pretty far.

Interesting....I live in the crowded 'burbs' of Los Angeles....but yet we have wildlife all over....a couple of Hawks in the park across the street....a family of Raccon's living in the area (I've chased them out of the addition more than once)...geese across the street.....more than once we had to call the Sheriff's to have them shoo'd back to the pond....

The only creatures I don't want around are rat's and termites.....everything else is welcome....including the noise....which includes the neighbor who has a big ass tropical bird that makes a hell of a racket....but it's a beautiful sound...

So you're going to pass on buying your possible "dream home" because one of the neighbors is doing something they aren't supposed to do??

Of course not!!

My dream home is in a neighbourhood that I like ...pre approved ...like a dream mortgage...with dream neighbours that I get along with..

I just don't agree with moving into an existing neighbourhood and trying to change things that worked perfectly fine prior. Its chinckens not drugs.Why make problems for people ?

It's always good to start out being logical and informed. Find out what's allowed in your area. If roosters aren't, game over. If they are then...tough. It sounds like they have the coop as far away from their house as possible right? I think most people would rather not hear it but if it's allowed then consider yourself lucky. I wish my biggest issue was a cocka-doodle-dooing rooster. There's been a rash of break ins in our area, our house was broken into in Feb, a neighbors house that same week, two weeks ago I caught a kid breaking in my wife's car, and last week I spotted two guys exiting a house I know to be vacant for well over a year. Called the cops but nothing happened.

I guess it's all relative. Being civil is good. I would first introduce yourself to your neighbors and not even mention the rooster. Just have a chat to get to know them a little. Anonymously tattle taling on them to the city would be my last resort.

(anyone w/ a brain would know the 'new people' sicked the city on them in your scenario...right?)

I wander over and say hi. Feel them out. I had a neighbor that thought it was cool to play his music real load. Every time that music went up I would run over there and start doing one of those hare khrisna dances in his yard. I acted like this was the greatest thing ever. I would slam down as many beers of his beers as I could. The first time I puked all over after slamming down four beers in a row. His dog starting eating it then he vomited after seeing his dog eat my puke. It has been nearly two years since i have heard a thing from that house. They think I am absolutely nuts.

Without pictures, it didn't happen.
