A rooster belts out a cry from one of the yards, where the homeowners also keep a pair of geese in a converted sun porch. What they don't have, however, are any permits for their minor menagerie. Denver does allow chickens for an annual fee. Roosters, though, are entirely outlawed.
So it's understandable that the homeowner, Brad, doesn't want his last name used.
Look for this to increase greatly in the years ahead, with local authorities turning a blind eye to the zoning violations.
