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.

  1. Roosters do like to crow in the morning and occasionally during the day but they dont crow at night. Dogs and cats bark and yowl at all hours which i find much more annoying.

    Probably everything is more noisy than roosters: cars, planes, people, etc.

    I'm not saying they need to be included in the legalization of chickens but poor roosters have it so tough and they are really pretty cool.
