The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to revoke a temporary ban on roosters and other “crowing” birds that they had approved in July.

The plan had been to ban the birds from residential areas, but residents said the animals were a part of a rural lifestyle and the ban would contradict the region’s “Farm-to-Fork” mentality.

Supervisors had approved a temporary ban after some residents complained about the noise from the birds.
