Is there anything I can do about my neighbor that has a rooster that is annoying and wakes me up before dawn everyday?
My neighbor has a rooster in a chicken pen that's located about 15 feet from the fence that divides our property. My house is approximately 30-35 feet from our fence, making the total distance from my house to his pen ~40-45 feet.
In my county there is an ordinance: roosters and code 4494-3 section (c) says:
(c)Rooster enclosures shall have a minimum set back from adjacent residences of forty (40) feet.
Question - Is there anything I can do or does this mean he can have the chicken pen located where he has it because the pen is approximately 40-45 feet from my house, or does this code mean the adjacent residence is our fence line?
It seems if the adjacent property meant the house, it would say something like adjacent residential dwelling or adjacent residential structure or adjacent residential building, but it just says adjacent residence.
FYI - He often lets his chickens roam outside of the pen and they roam right up next to our fence.
