I've only had my birds for a month. I have four young chicks. There is nowhere in any yard in this neighborhood that could meet the 150 feet ruling.
We recieved a notice on our door notifying us that a complaint was received. I'm trying to find out if I can request that they grant me an extension until after the June 5th vote. Does anyone have any experience in trying to negotiate with Animal Services? Do they have to disclose the source of the complaint? Would it matter or help the situation if I could get my neighbors to sign a letter saying they don't mind the birds? I have a theory that a very nosy person down the street issued the complaint purely on the basis that it was 'against the rules'. They have a habit of this kind of thing.
I guess they changed ordinance. I saw a house with some sad looking chickens in a small little dog run. They are so crowded. at the corner of NW Dallas and NW 20Th St. I dont know why Grand Prairie allows so many in such a small pen. They are in the back yard but can be seen from the street. So sad.
