County sets limits on roosters outside UGA

Sorry, roosters. You’re out of cluck.

Chelan County commissioners on Tuesday, Dec. 7, approved changes to Chelan County Code 11.88.030, which sets limits on the livestock that residents can have in the county.

The changes, targeted at roosters, come after Community Development received noise complaints about the disruptive birds. Changes were made to the regulations applying to properties outside an urban growth area (UGA). Outside the UGA:

On lots of a half acre or less, roosters are not allowed.

On lots of a half acre or greater (but less than 5 acres), one rooster is allowed per half acre.

On lots of 5 acres or greater, roosters are limited to two per acre.

The code remains status quo for properties inside a county UGA. That means roosters are excluded on lots inside the UGA that are less than an acre and permissible on lots 1 acre and greater.
