A Rooster on the Run - Nature 90

 We saw a beautiful rooster at the corner of our area this morning. Actually, he was moving from one spot to another.

Just to let you know that our city, Baton Rouge allows for raising chickens, but depending on property sizes.

In case of properties smaller than an acre (4,047 square meters), we are allowed to have up to 3 hens only, and roosters are prohibited at all.

It is because roosters make noise quite loud, they are very vocal, especially in the early morning. 

The roosters may crow as early as 4.00 am, so who lives in a close-knit neighborhood will complain.

If we have more than one acre land, we may ask a permit from city to have more hens and a rooster. Some people said that raising roosters may be a rewarding experience.

Have you experienced raising chickens?

  1. When I was a kid my grandpa used raising chickens. It was a beautiful experience for me, I remember again how friendly they were.
    When I run in early morning I enjoy the crow of the roosters.

  2. Por estos lados, PIedecuesta (Colombia) es muy dada la crianza de gallos de pelea, a pesar de las prohibiciones. En los ejidos funcionan negocio de apuestas, llamadas galleras, con alcohol y mucha fritanga. Un abrazo. Carlos
