People in positions with the city/county should know better than to create laws on their own.
If the gloves don't fit, you must acquit!
Good job Sid!
Sid, good for you and your fine fowl. And good for the people of your city, to fret out such a… well uninformed person whom maned the phone.
Just a quick check in here. SideWing:
Utah's Constitution is written such that if a law does not strictly prohibit a thing, it is not illegal.
So if it is not specifically stated that roosters are not allowed, they ARE allowed. will work on finding the pertinent code specifically for the future.
I have forgotten more about Utah code than I care to admit.
Cynthia, Where are you?
I'm in Spanish Fork
Did you have any bantams using the dog bowl? I was looking at how tall it was and I'm sure my full sized girls would have no problem, not sure about the bantam broodies and their 9 week old chicks. Of course they'll be bigger by the time it actually freezes (I hope).
I figured I'd try an experiment. The dog bowl I picked up from IFA is the same height as one of those "gallon" pails of cheap ice cream from walmart, so I filled one up with water and stuck it in the coop. I put a brick next to it for the chicks to get up on if needed. I'll see if they drink out of it.
Glad things worked out!
