well this a.m. I received a visit from our "lovely" code enforcement officer. I have 3 pullets and a leghorn roo, all around 4 mos old. Before I got these birds I spoke with a couple of my neighbors and they were all ok with the idea...My youngest daughter wants to show our chickens in the Brevard County 4-H. We do however already belong to the 4-H because my oldest shows horses! Anyhow was wondering if it would be sly of me too pull the 4-H card? In the codes it states that: I cannot keep the roo but I can have 1 type of fowl...but states this...the keeping of farm fowl and farm animals may be permitted as a " conditional accessory" use on 2 1/2 acres min. in the RR-1 on SPECIFIC CONDITIONS THAT THE FARM ANIMAL IS USED FOR PERSONAL, NONCOMMERCIAL USE OF OCCUPANTS ONLY.???? What does that mean?....A conditional permit may be granted on LESS than 2 1/2 acres in cases where the animal is necessary to alleviate a bona fide medical hardship??? What is a medical hardship?? I live in a un-incorperated town, so the county rules over us! I do live in the burbs on a typical lot for a neighborhood. Could anyone please read between these line and see if I can keep my chickens? Thank You in advance!!
