Have you visited the local library, clerks office or local college and inquired about their copy of the local ordinances?

The blunt reality is that laws have to be published and available to the public or else they don't have the effect of law...

 

some people are not comfortable sharing those information on the net..

 

well..i provided my opinion regarding the situation -- the decision is still up to him/her

What i posted above are just my opinions.. they are NOT facts.

I do not want to give my information for privacy reasons.

 

We know there are laws, but they are inaccessible. Besides, I doubt the police are checking peoples homes for correct sized and placed coops.


Thank you for all the help you've tried to provide, but we're just going to let it roll

I beg to differ that they are not accessible, you just refuse to explore the routes that would provide you access, as I said I guarantee the clerks office has copies as I'm sure other places do like the local library do as well... But, you have pretty much made it clear you don't really care to access them at this point...

Again I beg to differ, in most communities there are in fact code enforcement officers or building inspectors that do just that as their full time job... Plus in my experience there is never a shortage of busy body snitches and it only takes one of those...

May I suggest you have a backup plan in place to re-home if you do find yourself in violation...

Also this kind of attitude hurts the entire backyard community, as post like this are exactly what 'anti-chicken' people love to see and collect so they can show up at town meetings when people are trying to get laws changed and proclaim that chicken keepers choose to ignore laws and thus there should be heavier fines, stricter rules and more enforcement of the laws...

I have attended village meetings were people have done exactly the above when people try to change ordinances, so I know full well it happens...

I will say things many times as I have in the past:

 

1. I do not want to list my town.

 

2. We have searched all over, even thinking about calling the state.

 

Here is some helpful information:

We live in the middle of nowhere in a little less than a suburban area. Even if someone was to chase us, I doubt we would get in trouble. We have clear reasons to state why and how we could not access the information.

We're not getting a rooster. No one will really hear that much noise.

"Anti-Chicken people" I doubt there's any of those in this area... or in general. 1/5 houses in our neighborhood has a coop. We talked to them and they told us they just built it. Someone even has a roo and has had chickens for 5 years, never been chased after.

 

Let me say that last, given the fact that I have not listed my actual location, no one will actually attempt to find where I live, unless they have nothing better to do.

 

I'd like to send everyone on there way, I have made a decision and and sticking with it. Goodbye. Thank you for all the help you have tried to provide.

Without the name of a town, we can't help you find the information you are seeking. I'm sure it's available somewhere, you just haven't found the right website or the right section of the codes/regulations. We would love to help you, but it seems that you do not want help. If that's the case, why did you bother posting. Unless you can find out for sure whether or not you are allowed to have chickens, it would be best to err on the side of caution and not obtain them.
