    HI Carla,
    We currently live in Altadena and have four chickens but our landlord is selling the house and we have to relocate. I would love to hear how this is coming along as we may end up in Pasadena.

    We are a small group of chicken owners, working on a petition, and planning to go before the Pasadena City Council to change the ordinance from "within 50 feet of any property line" to "within 35 feet of any occupied dwelling, other than the owner". If you live in Pasadena, would you like to join us?
