A couple living in an upscale area of Hollywood have filed a lawsuit to have their neighbors’ 15 chickens removed, saying the birds are loud and smelly.
Grant and Sandra Einhorn have filed a civil suit and asked a judge to order their neighbors, the Kohn family, to remove the chickens from their back yard.
[On April 4, the judge denied the motion to have the chickens removed, setting a trial date for April 18.]
Sandra Einhorn said there is no peace.
“They cluck starting in the morning it is on and off throughout the day,” she told Local 10’s Jeff Weinsier. “We have feathers in our pool, and when it’s hot out, it smells like a farm.”
Sandra Einhorn provided Local 10 with pictures and video that show chickens on her property and on a fence that separates the houses. In the video, chickens could be heard clearly clucking from the Einhorns’ back yard.
Broward Circuit Judge Michele Towbin-Singer went to the homes last week to see how bad the situation is before making a decision.
“The judge was here for an hour and a half and heard nothing from either side. There is no nuisance,” said Steve Kohn, who owns the chickens.
