Family's 30 roosters likely violate Land Use Ordinance

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Apr 16, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> What is the law regarding the caging and keeping of roosters in a residential neighborhood? Our neighbors in Sunset Beach have up to 30 roosters for their boys to &quot;play&quot; with. They are incredibly noisy, sometimes screaming for several hours. They told us that because they live on agriculture land, they are allowed to have as many roosters as they please. This doesn't seem reasonable, especially since the noise is extremely disturbing to the neighborhood. They have told us to move if we don't like it. We are very quiet people, and if we cannot resolve this situation, sadly, we may have to do just that.</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> You shouldn't have to move, although city zoning inspectors haven't been successful in accessing the property.</p>
