person to suffer or permit any chicks, chickens, geese, ducks or turkeys, or any hare or hares, rabbit or
rabbits, or cavy or cavies owned or controlled by such person to run at large or to go upon the
premises of any other person in the City.

(b) It is hereby declared to be a nuisance, and it shall be unlawful and a municipal offense for any
person to keep or maintain any chicks, chickens, geese, ducks, turkeys, pigeons, doves or squabs in an
enclosed structure or building within eight (8) feet of the property line of any adjacent improved lot or
parcel of land or in an unenclosed structure or open pen or run within fifteen (15) feet of such

Edited:  Your city, like most, place restrictions on where you can have chickens in the city based on zoning.

I wonder if this is the same in Pueblo West also? 

Otherwise, I might have to move my dog run before I get chickens/ducks/or whatever I eventually decide to get.
