To my neighbor who got the rooster: I would like to meet you. And not in a "Hi neighbor, I brought over a plate of cookies" kind of way, either.

Please, God, make it stop. I know I said I was an early riser, but 3:45?? Too early.

We had a rooster in the park across the street from our apartment for several months a couple years ago. I know, "In NYC?!" Yes. Now I know this may seem ridiculous to say to you right now but we got used to it and after a while we liked it. Is it literally right next door?

Remember when we stayed at Kyle's house after the Chile Pepper Fest? It's like that.

I think it is on the street adjacent.

There used to a rooster that walked up and down the sidewalk at the house across the street from my first apartment. I was a vegetarian and I felt very badly about wishing Mr. Rooster would hurry up and become somebody's Sunday dinner.

The guy who used to live next door raised chickens and there was always one rooster. WE LIVE IN A MAJOR METROPOLITAN CITY!!! DOWN THE STREET FROM A UNIVERSITY!!!

People would come by for a visit and pause on the driveay, cock their heads and say (doubtfully), "I could have sworn I heard a rooster!"

A rooster? Are you fucking kidding? Go shoot it and have a good dinner.

First time commenter, here.
Oh boy, I can relate. I live next to a pseudo-farm and they have two roosters! Agh!
There's also some freakin loud goats, sheep and geese. I'm glad to say after 5 years, I've finally adjusted to the racket.

WTH? Aren't there any city ordinances against raising livestock? I hate my neighbor enough, I can't imagine if he got roosters.

are you serious? a real rooster? oh, you have my deepest sympathies. why don't you make signs? maybe the poor thing was dropped off and everybody is wondering the same thing as you. that's just too damn hokey.

Mmmmm... tastes like chicken. With a side of buckshot. Go ahead. Shoot it. We won't tell. :)

OMG, that reminds me of when I was in newborn-hell and I would be up at all hours nursing and I'd always know it was ALMOST morning when I'd hear the roosters from our local school's farm, oh , and the newspaper delivery guy. Oh, the horror.

Even though I live in a heavily populated urban area, there are a zillion roosters around here. I figure there is a cockfighting subculture. (I'm not joking). I just wasn't lucky enough to have one near my house until last week.

I'm a veg, so no chicken/rooster dinner for me. Maybe Goldie, though...she loves to hunt!

if some "accident" should come early in the morning, I'm sure you could find a nice homeless person that would eat a certain rooster.

des- LOL.
All of you advocating the murder and consumption of mr. rooster should be ashamed.
Sue, all he needs is a fed up, late night neighbor to relocate him to Ojai. Know anyone?
