So here's the story. Neighbors called about the unfortunate roo I ended up with after buying him as a pullet. I am new to chickens and didn't know I had been dooped (he was a silkie until I heard the crows. Yesterday I FINALLY sold him, after 3 months of postings etc.... Anyhow, I came home from selling him to a business card from the health dept. After calling him I was informed that I had been mis informed about my city ordinances and I have 5 business days to move my flock. The man from the health dept seemed smug when I asked if there was any way I could get a permit or perhaps have the ordinance revised. He told me if 'he had any say in it that chickens would stay where they belong, in the country'. After looking up some info, I will be contacting the alderperson in my area, but he will be derferring back to health dept about sanitation codes etc....ANY help fighting this would be GREATLY appreciated as I'm bound and determined to keep my 5 girls....what to do?!
