* Odd, wouldn't that seen to mean you can't even have pets that could get anywhere near your own kitchen??

"20 feet from any dwelling". Does the word dwelling mean the house itself, or the house with its backyard? Our neighbor's house is about 20 feet from our common backyard fence, so can I let my chickens stay along our fence line? Or do I need to keep my chickens 20 feet away from the fence?

A dwelling is usually a building, not the property on which it sits.
