Additional Information(Code 1966, § 13-64), Sec. 14-2. deals with nuisances. These Subparas (5,6) specifies that chickens (and other small animals) cannot be kept in a manner \"offensive, producing odors capable of annoying persons living in the vicinity or kept in an unclean condition\" and any area collecting excreta must be clean, sanitary, and not causing flies. Interesting aside. This PDF document on the city website suggests helping control mosquitos by not letting chickens\' water stagnate in pans: so the city is obliquely referring to the existence of suburban chickens.
