I'm an hour and a half north of Sacramento in a dinky town called Cool. Humbolt has such a lovely poultry show every year! I love driving up there to attend.
Ivy, don't do that! Hens are easy to rehome. I can think of 3 people, myself included, that would take them. Also, there was just a huge ordinance about chickens in Sac county that failed. I'm not sure about where you live, but I know that more rural areas are now allowed to keep chickens AND roosters... as many as they like. A friend of mine was super involved with the failure of this ordinance, you should contact him and ask about your situation. His name is Chris Tomayo and his email is email@example.com. He's a nice guy, he'll help you out. He lives in Citrus Heights... isn't that a pretty urban area?
