Roosters have apparently run afoul (afowl?) of the Haverford Township Board of Commissioners, who recently voted to prohibit keeping the birds anywhere within the township's limits, according to The Delaware County Daily Times.
The issue originally up for a vote was an amendment clarifying an animal control ordinance, but Commissioner Jane Hall reportedly called for a flat-out ban on roosters after expressing concerns in the past about a noisy bird owned by her neighbor.
Hall called the rooster prohibition "a noise and privacy issue," according to the paper.
The bird ban was unanimously approved.
Commissioners also considered prohibiting hens but concluded that other feathered creatures can be addressed later.
