I have neighbors from H***. They have had the code inspectors AND the animal cruelty inspectors out on us twice now. They have harassed us for EVERYTHING we do on our property. now... they are going after our chickens.
Twice the inspectors have been out... and TWICE they left with nothing but complements for us saying there are NO violations and that the neighbors are now saying the chickens are a nuisance.... as in Oder.
Well.. the last inspector asked us if we ran out and cleaned the coop before he got there because there was no oder. We told him no.. that we clean it every week and remove and throw away ALL the shavings every two weeks.
Needless to say... the first inspector told us that we were well within our rights to put up a fence. So today.. we are!
Its costing us over $6,000 to put it up! But... the code inspector just left today (after the neighbor spent the morning yelling at us and the guys doing the fence).
The code guy told us that the only thing the can complain about now is neucense complaints about oder... which he didn't find any... AND if I try to sell eggs (which had been my plan) that they could say we were in violation of business laws and needed inspections and stuff.
SOOO... we are thinking.. OK lets beat him to the punch! HOW do I get the inspections, the testing, and everything else in Texas??? We are willing to pay for the testing ext on the birds.
We are outside of city limits.
