I live in a new-ish housing development and as such, the gardens aren't massive and all back onto one another. One of my neighbours has gone and got a bloody rooster!! DH and I have heard the bloody thing crowing all day, it's Day 1 and it's already making me feel murderous Angry AIBU to think roosters are for the countryside?

No way should they have a rooster. Totally antisocial. Complain to whoever will listen.

If the developers are still on site, get in to the office and complain.

I have kept chickens for years, bur would never have a cockerel. I don't want my neighbours to hate me.

I would report them to the council.

We live in suburbia and we have chickens. We usually buy them when they are adult and obviously only get females but a few years ago we bought 5 chicks and 2 of them turned out to be roosters. They were so noisy. Thankfully we were able to send them to a farm pretty quickly.
It's VU to have noisy animals

I found my Nieghbours chickens really irritating so goodness know what I'd have thought if they got a cockerel.

I'd complain to them and if that didn't work I'd complain to environmental health.

I hate the sound of roosters. When I was pregnant with DD my school had a rooster so the sound reminds me of hideous morning sickness and makes me gag 🤢
