Anyone who owns a rooster of any size within a nautical mile of the home of someone who isn't independently wealthy? The police should drag out into the street and chained to the ground and their neighbors should be allowed 24 hours to tear up the inside of that person's home and hide alarm clocks set in any way to any time and of any volume they want inside the home.

Also, the chickens should all be put to delicious yakitori death.

Hey, who wouldn't enjoy a little cock every once in a while?

But it doesn't have to be a minuture one. I guess you could say... any cock'll do.

Nobody likes small cocks, we'll pet them and pretend they're cute just to be polite.

I thought the "hipster urban chicken coop" craze was over as evidenced by the increased number of chickens being dropped off at animal shelters.

Fark you hipsters, just fark you. Animals aren't there to make you farking trendy and cool with your stupid hipster friends and then get thrown away when you get tired of taking care of it. I have a better idea. Take that money, buy a gun, put it in your mouth and kill yourself. How does that sound?

But make it some cheap POS, not some valuable collectible that will end up just rusting in an evidence room somewhere until it gets unceremoniously scrapped.  Because that would be exactly the sort of thing a hipster would do.

I feel similarly about barking dogs.

Why do you give the independantly wealthy a pass?

Of course, you are right.  Still, I think there are better ways to deal with abandoned animals.  We are looking after 2 abandoned cats for several years now.  However, I never suggested for their former owners to shoot themselves.  A bit drastic, don't you think!  We must have compassion for animals, if not, what are we here for?

No, I don't.
Anyone that has so little regard for another life that they can basically toss it out like trash when their done with it or tired of it is a horrible human being and should suffer the same fate as the animals they throw away.

I have family members I no longer talk too for this exact reason. You treat animals like disposable property, there's no place for you in my world.

My grandma used to get chased around by a rooster when she was a kid. One day my great-grandma got fed up, marched out into the yard, wrung it's neck and they had it for dinner that night.

Seramas aren't the only beloved little cocks in the world... These here are my guys - Japanese Ohiki bantams. They only weigh about 1-1 1/2 pounds as adults, and are extremely affectionate little brightly colored, soft, feathery, cuddly round birds that have super short legs (maybe a 1/2 inch long) and very long tails (up to 2-3 feet). They are totally the chicken equivalent of the lapdog, with an even sweeter personality than the Serama (Seramas are very 'cocky' and fiesty, like tiny little game roosters; Ohikis on the other hand are are gentle, completely unaggressive, cuddly dustmops).

Showing off his brilliant red feathers in the sun; notice how long and fine the feathers are...  Ohiki plumage is much more soft, flexible, and silky - like fur - than regular feathers.

I'm not allowed seramas. The husband unit doesn't feel that bantams are worth their feed because the eggs are so small. He barely tolerates the silkies and those girls are always hard at work trying to raise chicks. And even though it takes several of them, the boys make good chicken noodle soup. The black doesn't bother me.

The poultry shows have the neat little tabletop contests for seramas. I have a friend who's had a rooster as a house pet for several years. They had large chickens already and decided a chicken was better than a parrot for a house pet.

Great little pets; even the little hens (PS: they do lay edible eggs, takes two to equal one regular 'large' sized egg though) will follow you around and flutter up to your shoulders to get close and say 'hi'.

Quite a few of my neighbors have roosters, mostly only bantams.

I have no idea why they keep roosters in the middle of a relatively densely packed city, maybe the crowing reminds them of their home in the countryside of Mexico.
