A FURIOUS couple are taking their neighbours to court over their pet cockerel – which they say crows up to 200 times a day.
Friedrich-Wilhelm K, 76, and his wife Jutta say Magda the rooster begins squawking from 8am in the morning and doesn’t stop for the rest of the day.

The constant noise is reportedly so “unbearable,” they are unable to use their garden or even open their window.
And now they want the bird removed from their neighbour’s home in Bad Salzuflen, Germany for good.
Friedrich-Wilhelm told German television: “He doesn’t start until 8am because he is locked up at night but then he crows 100 to 200 times throughout the day.
“We can’t use the garden and we can’t open any windows. It’s unbearable.”
His wife Jutta added: “It’s hard to talk about torture, but that’s what it’s like.”
Their lawyer, Torsten Gieseke, has since claimed that “a cockerel doesn’t belong on a quiet housing estate”, as Friedrich- Wilhelm noted that one neighbour had even been forced to move away two years ago due to the constant crowing.
The couple have even begun taking daily logs to record each time the cockerel crows in a bid to argue their case.
But Magda’s owner, Michela D, 50, argued that the presence of the rooster in his garden was essential to maintain order among his flock of hens.
“The hens need the rooster, otherwise they would pluck each other,” he said.
Michael first bought the chicks in 2018 with the intention of harvesting their eggs.
But after one turned out to be rooster, he began receiving complaints from fed up locals.
Now, following several years of the daily crows, Friedrich-Wilhelm and Jutta are set to have their case heard in Lemgo District Court.
“We really did a lot of tests. Our kids tried, our neighbours tried,” Friedrich-Wilhelm added.
“The neighbour doesn’t give up his rooster and we have to either live with that, or we have to win in court.”
The bizarre legal case comes just weeks after The Sun exclusively revealed the plight of one British family who are facing eviction over their collection of noisy birds.
The Godsons have already received countless complaints over their eight noisy parrots polly-gone.
Many angry residents reckon the seven macaws and an African grey shout and swear outside in their aviary.
They have annoyed neighbours with their squawks of “hello,” “shut that door,” “go away” and “oh yeah”.
While other locals say they can’t stand the nattering when the creatures are put in the aviary outside their housing association home.
“I can hardly order the parrots to keep quiet,” owner Pete Dobson said in response.
“These birds are like children to us, they are part of the family. I would do everything in my power to keep them.
“The local kids and everyone loves them. They sit on their shoulders and let everyone tickle and stroke them.
“And they are fantastic in keeping my children relaxed and calm.”
