County Codifies Rooster Limits

One more thing,since the main argument for this ordinance (violation of which is only a misdemeanor) is that cockfighting is a misdemeanor, if California makes cockfighting a felony can we have our roosters back?

County Codifies Rooster Limits

"The limits, based on lot sizes, are set to take effect Jan. 1, to give people time to comply with the ordinance." And how are people who are over the limit supposed to comply? Are we supposed to have a mass rooster slaughter? And this is supposed to be humane? Where are these newly illegal birds supposed to go? There will be a lot of dead pet roosters if people comply with this.

Some of the birds effected by this limit are valuable animals and or loved pets. Contrary to the belief of many, 99.999% of roosters are not for fighting and it is possible to control rooster noise. You can even go on the county website and find information about it. I keep mine in the garage at night but that would violate the new 50 ft rule. Even if you live in an agricultural zoned area you can't breed chickens? What's more agricultural than poultry? This makes no sense.

I predict an increase in the enrollment in 4H clubs.
