Try ringing your local council and asking what the rules are. Or email them.

There doesn't appear to be much imfo. available. This is the only publication that I can find.

Try ringing Domestic Animal Services - they used to be responsible for poultry management
I think that roosters fall into the nusience noise catagory - OK unless some one makes a valid complaint.
The ACT govt was quite tolerant when I lived there.

This is another link,(updated 2015) there seems to be nothing to indicate that things have changed

Yes, my experience keeping chooks in Canberra was that anything goes, as long as you didn't do anything stupid and spoil it for everybody. But that was well over 20 years ago.

So it is great to see on your first link that Jan Spate is still a recommended chook vet. She was legend when she looked after my rabbits/chooks when help was needed - 'the barefoot vet' - brilliant to see she is still practicing.

Off topic but unfortunately Jan has had her licence suspended. Long story, seems to be largely political. A lot of people very upset at the loss of a great vet.

Oh thanks Sue55, and not really off topic because the loss of a capable bird vet affects chook owners even out of area. Just found all I could on-line about it which is plenty. This was going on low key over 20 years ago, the resentment of a good service being made affordable was getting up the noses of the establishment professionals even then, and some nasty back-stabbing going on. So it has waited and more or less won. Great victory. Hope they are proud of themselves.

Just sad, and I don't see it as 'political' but rather professional jealousy and resentment of someone not toeing the line. Gobsmacked.
