“Cock a Doodle Doo Don’t!”

Nope, that “For Sale” home isn’t in the sticks somewhere, miles from the nearest neighbors.

It’s less than 2 blocks southeast of Minneapolis’ Lake Harriet, in a neighborhood where homes fetch from $500k to triple that (at least) on the lake (this one’s listed for $525k).

My Realtor understanding is that “domestic chicken-keeping” (can you tell I grew up in the city?) is the local municipality’s call — i.e., city ordinances govern — but that in general, hens are OK┬ábut not roosters.

And of course, there’s a required license (and fee, natch).
