The famous 11th street fowl last caught on film in 2008

“Dear PoPville,

I live between 13th and 14th on Newton st and for the past couple weeks have been woken up every morning by a rooster cock-a-doodle-doo-ing. Is it legal to have roosters in the city limits?”

Actually a topic that comes up every year or so in Columbia Heights. I believe CM Tommy Wells introduced or was considering introducing legislation to legalize some degree of fowl in the District but I don’t think it got anywhere. So at the moment this is not legal. Anyone else hearing the cock-a-doodle-doo-ing?
