Hi I have a neighbour who is constantly complaining about everything I do. We got some ( only 4) chickens on Monday from the little hen rescue (ex battery hens) and it has only been 4 days and she has already been round to complain. Apparently I am the neighbour from hell as my son has a drum kit. My children dare to play outside on their trampoline and now I have chickens. That does sound noisy but to put it in perspective my son plays his drums in the garage at the front of the house ( this neighbour lives 2 houses away behind us)He plays no more than 4 times a week for no more than 20 mins a time and he needs to practise as he is doing GCSE music. I dont let him play before 8am or after 8pm and he is at school 8.30 - 4pm. The trampoline gets used about once a month if that and not late at night and the chickens cluck a bit I don't have a cockerel to do the dawn cock a doodle doo thing. I live in a village of about 800 houses and there are 2 farms both with chickens. This neighbour is the Parish councils nightmare and complains about everything they complained that the bushes near them were overgrown and kids played in them so the parish council had them cut down and they then complained that this let the noise from the school and farmyard into their garden.
I don't know what to do she said she was going to get onto the council about us (this is a privately owned home) should I be worried???
