Let's dispel the noise myth. It's very simple.
Roosters are noisy, chickens are not. We are not calling for the legalization of roosters.
Roosters are not needed in order for chickens to lay eggs, as councillor Ron Jones discovered when he asked us this question in the Licencing Commission meeting.
Hens are quiet creatures, and make far less noise than dogs or the traffic outside your gate. They cluck and make small noises, but it's not a sound that would normally be heard in the neighbour's yard.
