The loan obtained for my home was a USDA loan and they provided a map of agricultural land for the area I was to choose my home from. The agent who handled the loan process told me I could have chickens because the map shows this entire area as agricultural land. I dont have the map but it is on the internet somewhere because they directed me to it online so I could house search. However, the way it works with a USDA loan is that the government provides the loan long enough for you to purchase a home and then the loan is sold so the goverment gets their money back and my loan was sold to Wells Fargo Bank and that is now who I pay my house payment to.
I cant let my chickens free range at all. These actual free range chickens out here will run my own chickens out of their own yard and I am afraid for my little bantam rooster. I guess I could be afraid for my big rooster too. If these free range roosters jumped my big rooster, it would be one heck of a fight but oh what a horrible fight it would be and I dont want any rooster killed. As for my bantam, the free range roosters and my big rooster might all attack him and he will be done for dead. And I dont know what would happen to my hens. It is too dangerous to let mine free range at all. Also, if I even could let them free range for a bit, as soon as my neighbor sees they are in the house he will report it again.
What really stinks about this whole thing and makes absolutely no sense at all is ---- I have had my housed chickens here for four years, no complaints, and the jerk beside me even tried to make nice conversation about my chickens with me, of which I was nice just to keep peace. The free range chickens showed up and so he complains and tells his code and zoning buddy that I am housing all of these chickens.
I can pretty much figure out what took place. My stupid, ignorant jerk retired code and zoning enforcer for a neighbor probably didnt realize that I was not allowed housed chickens or he would have put in to get rid of them from the git go and that just because he has tried to harass me for four years because I told him and his wife to please leave me alone about gossiping at the fence and telling me what I should be doing to my plants, my lawn, my everything. And so when he called his zoning buddy he then learned nothing could be done about free range chickens so the buttwipe probably told his zoning buddy that I house all of these chickens with thinking that would make me responsible to get rid of every single chicken, the free range and my own.
His buddy comes out here and clearly sees what I have housed. He tells me there is nothing that he can do about the free range chickens but I am not allowed to have housed chickens. It isnt even my housed chickens that the jerk was complaining about but it is my housed chickens that have to go because the jerk figured out he had to say they are all housed in his effort to make me responsible for the free ranged chickens by making it sound like they are not free range and they belong to me. He is a gossiping liar and has been since the first day we moved here.
There should be a law against buttwipes using reporting as a personal vendetta against someone. My jerkwad neighbor should pay a penalty for trying to force someone to hang at the fence for his gossiping lies and for bugging someone to death every single time they step out into their yard with being so nosy about every move that is made.
And so why not have housed chickens???? It is the free range chickens the stupid people dont want around out here so why not house chickens??? And if ya stop and think about it, every single thing the government sticks their hands into turns out to be bassackwards and this is just one more thing they have done something totally stupid about.
I will give the wildlife thing a try but I really dont think that will work. Hillsborough County has their crap written in such a way that a chicken is nothing but a farm animal, period. They do not acknowledge that they can be pets. They do not acknowledge that all chickens are not just chickens. They do not acknowledge any special breeds. To them, a chicken is a farm animal, period. Even if I had a permit the county says I am not allowed to house chickens, which they must be a bunch of cold hearted people because they dont comprehend that chickens can be pets and loved just like any dog or cat is loved and the depression of taking them away from those who love them is real and makes a person very very sick to where they can hardly even function.
This has me so extremely sick. I am in such a major depression and trying to function enough to get a place built over at my Mom's for my chickens and trying to maintain my home and yard and all other responsibility. I am struggling to get out of bed. There is no way out. I cant sell my home for what I paid for it, much less for enough to have money to get another house. I dont want to live here any more. I am willing to let it go back to the bank and go rent somewhere but my husband wont do that. So now I wait for somebody to die - me, my neighbor or my husband -- this is my only way out. I die - I am out. My neighbor dies - my chickens come back. My husband dies - I get to move.
These neighbors right here around me have been nothing but gossiping buttholes since the first day we moved here. I have never in my life lived around such people as this and I am 53, almost 54 years old and I have lived in a lot of places and this is my fourth time buying a home. This is like some horror movie here with these people. Something is woefully wrong with these people!! I aint kidding you!! I know I am sick and I can tell you when somebody else is sick and these people are some really sick people!! I mean, they are even sicker than I am!! And I am stuck here!!
And I am putting this next portion here to explain the fence with the slats the man keeps knocking out of the fence ... And to show you just what a total azzwipe I am dealing with from this retired code enforcer for a neighbor and I keep stressing retired code enforcer because I want people to see just what we have working for our county and they are given some rule over us and this one thinks his rule reigns til his death!! His name is Thomas DeNicola and my husband has another name for that last name that I wont say here.
He, my retired code enforcement neighbor, Thomas DeNicola, has actually knocked slats out of the wooden fence. He can see over here in my back yard. I have gone out to my yard and slats are knocked over on into my yard, which my jerk neighbor wants to declare it is my fence. When I first moved here, he called me over to his God forsaken front fence - I hate that fence hahaha That fence is a horror fence for gossiping liars --- Anyhow, so he calls me over there and points to the wooden fence towards the back yard and says --- You know that is your fence, dont you. You are responsible to keep it maintained and repaired.

I told him -- Actually, I have already looked up all of the information about fences in Hillsborough County because that fence is right on the property line. I told him the laws in regards to fences on the property line. Both of us own the fence. Both of us are required to maintain and repair the fence. He quickly tossed up his hands and said ... now listen to this one ... The code and zoning laws do not apply out here .....
You see what I am dealing with here dont you? The laws only apply when he wants to use them to work for him!! And he has a big huge something hooked onto the other side of that fence and hangs his big ladder on it and the slats come loose and pop every time he takes his ladder off. And slats have shown up over here way on my property where he has obviously shoved them.
If anybody thinks that I am going to pay for this man to have a nice fence to hang his ladder on just so he can keep popping slats to cause me an ongoing expense in repairs ... they are crazy!! I aint touching that fence unless it is that I have prepared to put up my own fence and I will take down every single slat of that fence he declares is mine. I cant take down the post and rail post the slats are nailed to because that part is on his property but the slat boards fall on my side and I do plan one day, those slats will all come down when I buy enough fence to put up way on my property to block that man from me. I hate to see his face!
I didnt put that fence there. And I also think he is lying about the fence. The fence faces in a direction that would indicate it is his fence. The post and post boards face his house and by law, you are to face those to your house of your fence. I think the idiot put up that fence and then realized it is on the property line and so he is trying to make out like that fence was put up by somebody from this house. The man I bought the house from didnt put it up. It doesnt even matter who put it up, by law, we are both required to maintain and repair it and I am not repairing something that this man keeps purposely tearing up. He wants to tear it up, he can put his money into fixing what he vandalizes. This man is a liar!! A constant liar. A retired code and zoning liar to boot!!!!
