My new neighbours have just bought chickens and they are positioned about 6foot from our bedroom window. The noise one them makes very early in the morning is waking us up. Is there a law against causing this disturbance.

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I want to have chickens on my plot but there’s some conflict as to how many I am allowed. I want 12 but the new secretary doesn’t know the rules but is adamant it’s 6. She can’t provide me with any written information or direct me to where I might find it. I have searched the councils website but I’m not having any luck. Other plot holders have told me I can have 12 and some of them have been on here for 50 years so I’m inclined to believe them. Could anyone possibly point me to an official page, there’s nothing in my agreement to say how many but it does say I can keep hens not cockerels, I have to keep them safe and secure, clean etc but nothing about how many. Any help you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated ????

I would like to rescue 2 hens. I own my property. It’s a set of terraces surrounded by trees but in a residential area. Am I permitted to keep them?

Is there a limit to how many chickens you can keep in a domestic back garden and what are the rules regarding cockerels/noise etc.

One of our neighbours has got a rooster and some hens/chickens in there back garden. Is there a special way of disposing of the waste from these animals and is it dangerous to cats?

My neighbour has alot of chickens and rabbits which causes alot of flies in our home, how many are they allowed to keep in a residential garden.

My house backs onto allotments and the allotment owner by my garden built a large construction for chickens that the council told him.he couldn't have as it was too large. He has now filled it with chickens which he does not attend to regularly and we have many rats now coming into own gardens. Can you please let me know what we can.do about this? I have young children and often eat in the garden during the summer. I fear this is a huge health risk.
