An elderly couple from Germany sued a neighbor whose rooster drinks up to 200 times a day, which they describe as real torture. The unruly bird has been annoying local residents for several years, who were already on the verge of endurance.
76-year-old Friedrich-Wilhelm K. and his wife, Jutta, admit that a rooster named Magda starts drinking around 8:00 am and does not close for the rest of the day. The couple demand that the unruly bird be removed from a neighboring house in Bad Salzuflen, West Germany.
“This is unbearable. ”
In preparation for the court hearing, the spouses made a diary in which they wrote down each cock's crows. As they admit, the bird's behavior is like torture to them.
We must not spend time in the garden or keep our windows open. It starts drinking around 8:00 am because it is closed at night. Then he drinks from 100 to 200 times during the day. This is just unbearable. – admitted Friedrich-Wilhelm K. for German television.
What does the owner of the rooster say?
Friedrich-Wilhelm points out that one neighbor has moved out of estate two years ago – precisely because of the unbearable foam.
What does Magda's owner say? Michael D., 50, argues that he has to keep a rooster because it keeps his hens in check.
Chickens need a rooster or they would peck each other. – the owner protested.

Michael D. bought five chicks in 2018 for his garden with the intention of collecting their eggs. But one of the chicks turned out to be a rooster, which quickly began to annoy the local residents.
After several years of enduring the daily crowing, Friedrich-Wilhelm and Jutta have reached the limit of their endurance and are going to face the owner of Magda in Lemgo District Court.
We really tried to live with it somehow. So do our children and neighbors. However, this is not possible. – the spouses add.
