Somebody has a rooster in their back yard. How thoughtful.

Puzzled about the roosters as well... that neighborhood is so incredibly residential - where are these roosters kept?

They aren't allowed in Milford. I think you need a special exemption for chickens, unless the property was grandfathered in as a farm. A rooster is in my neighborhood in Upton, and he is not well liked around here either.
