Gaithersburg may ban fowl

By Washington Post editors

Officials in Gaithersburg are considering a ban on domestic fowl, such as roosters, chickens and geese, following a flurry of complaints from residents, The Gazette reports.

A growing number of households in Gaithersburg are building chicken coops and raising chickens and other types of birds. While they love getting fresh eggs, neighbors of the coops say the clucking and crowing is making them crazy. Adding to that, animal control officers say they are capturing more stray and escaped birds.
