I live in Spokane Wa. Right now we have 2 chickens and 2 ducks. We are allowed 1 per 2000 SF, our lot is 5400, so I guess our limit would be 2. We have a neighbor that has been causing all kinds of issues for us, including reporting that we are growing selling and using pot. House got searched, we got cleared on that charge. He stares at us through the cracks in the back fence(10 ft tall fence), that we can't fix because it's HIS fence, we offered. He complains if the sprinklers get his fence wet. He complains and tells us(demands) that we move our cars if they are any bit over the property line(extended out to the street, even though the street is public property so I can park anywhere it's legal to). Until he made the drug accusations we had done everything he asked, mainly because we are buying this house and have to live here, and I try to keep the peace. No more. I'm done with it. when he came over today and said "you need to move your car" I said I don't think so and slammed the door. I was in the garden later and heard him complaining to his wife about the chickens, so I'm sure there's a complaint coming regarding them soon. Animal control has recently been here to inspect my house as I got certified to foster for them, so I'm not majorly worried, they saw the chicks, the coop, the run, the lack of smell and how clean it was and commented on how healthy and happy they are. but I'm sure they will say something if pushed to by a complaint. So, I've been trying to come up with plans, alternatives, ideas so I don't panic if and when they come. In doing so I approached my teens with the possibility that we will have to get rid of 1, maybe two. I thought my 17 yr old was going to have a meltdown right there. Kim is schizophrenic and autistic. She is the one that pulled Tiki through when I was sure she would die, she is the one that slept next to the brooder every night and checked on them often to make sure they were warm enough. She is the one that they follow around. She will be devastated if we have to get rid of any. In talking to a coworker(we are both RN's) and telling her the situation, she suggested we have Kim's therapist and psychiatrist write notes and a prescription for them as therapy animals. How realistic is this idea? Has anyone here done that before? If it is feasible I would like to get started on it tomorrow before he has a chance to complain.
