Why on Earth would someone keep 50 roosters in their backyard, which is a little less than a half acre in size? About half are in 5x4x4 cages, the rest are tethered to 55 gallon drums with perches on top and a cutout. I came home from a vacation in September to find this going on. I am out in the country some, there are no laws against having one, but... Fifty? No hens, just roosters. My bedroom window and French doors overlook his backyard. The alpha starts in around 4 am, and the ensuing cacophony continues until around midnight. One? Fine. Two? Yep, ok. Three? Sure. Fifty? With?
