But the chicken owners disagree with ordinances such as those.
“There is a lot of misinformation out there, which people can get from television or children’s books,” said Michael Choquette, secretary for the New Hampshire Poultry Fanciers Association. “A barking dog can make just as much noise as a rooster can.”
Layon said cleanliness shouldn’t be an issue.
“If you have someone not taking care of birds, that’s the only time there’s an issue with it being unsanitary,” she said. “I don’t think that’s an issue that should be resolved by zoning.”
Evans said he hopes Londonderry officials eventually reconsider their current rules.
“This is New Hampshire, the Live Free or Die state,” he said. “I know neighbors want everything to be perfect, but that’s not how things work.”
