Rooster Ordinance

Effective July 14, 2015, Monterey County Code Ordinance 5249 requires permitting for  Rooster Keeping Operations where 5 or more roosters are kept on any single property within the unincorporated areas of Monterey County.

The purpose of the Rooster Ordinance is to balance the legitimate interests of agricultural businesses and agricultural educational organizations with the prevention of rooster keeping that is unsanitary, environmentally damaging, inhumane, and conducive to illegal cockfighting.

No Rooster Keeping Operation can legally operate in the unincorporated areas of Monterey County without either a permit exemption or a permit.

current fees

  • Rooster Keeping Operations Permit -  $270.00 Each (2 hours, permit processing and inspection and document review)
  • Re-inspection/Complaint Investigation -  $135.00 hr/officer
