When Roosters are Banned, . . .

. . . only outlaws will have roosters.

LA passes law limiting roosters to 1 per household: "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."

Chicken keeping inside city limits has been an issue in several Wisconsin towns. Just like Blacklin County.

Soon we'll have no freedoms left.

This only applies to roosters? So any number of hens is allowed? I hadn't heard about this, but I don't live in L.A. and the news here only covers the sensational stuff, it seems. Or perhaps this IS sensational.

Just glad they specified "rooster" and not the well-known synonym.
