It sounds like they may be violating health codes and/or noise ordinances. I’d do research on the noise ordinances in your town (typically they say that pets can’t be making noise that can be heard in a neighboring house during certain hours) and health codes related to spreading chicken feces in the lawn.

You know where you could find a hungy fox? Just kidding! If they realy do have too many you can report them to Animal Control.

I can’t really tell entirely from your diagram, is it over your property line? Because if it is, I would demand it be removed from my property.

I also think the noise ordinance/health bylaws would be a good avenue to search out.


How obnoxious of your neighbours.

Our town doesn’t have Animal Control either but we live near a big city and we report to the county Animal Control. I’m sure you already looking into it but if you haven’t maybe try contacting the County for help. Otherwise I’d call the police and bust them for noise pollution.

My fis parents have chickens all hens. I think the deal here is that you can have them in a residential area so long as you don’t have a rooster.   I would check. Also there might be something in your housing association thing. While fi lives down the road from me he is in a different development. I’m my develpMent you are not allowed to have livestock period .

I have had a problem with a rooster twice before with our neighbors, and called animal control. If you dont have an animal control I would start with calling the cops for the noise disturbance and the smell (I guess if it happens again). This site I also found imformative. Good Luck!! I know it is a pain in the ass to deal with.
