I live in a residential area here in 29 Palms and my dad loves animals. He has gotten 2 pigs and 2 goats 2-3 months ago and I got a 2 silkie chickens from my cousin for me and my twin sister's birthday in September. Everything's been fine, but since the past few weeks, our goats have been very loud... And it was only until today that an Animal Control guy visited our house. Our whole family have been attached to our animals and it was very disappointing that someone reported us that got notification from the city council/hall. The guy said that we had to get rid of ALL our animals in 30 days... including the silkies ( I really despised that he said that... :/) because just 3 weeks ago, I bought 4 more chick silkies. I understand that we don't live in a horse property... but we have a big backyard. And I also understand that our pigs and goats have to go as well. I'm sad about it.. and my dad said we would just have to butcher our 2 pigs and the male goat.. for food :/. But not the female goat because she's pregnant. So we're giving her away. I considered all the animals we had as pets. I don't care if they're labeled as "farm animals" or "poultry". I love all the animals we have, and I know there's no exception for the goats and pigs because we live in a residential area, but I don't see why we can't AT LEAST keep our silkies. They don't make a lot of noise, except for the adult male rooster :/. But my white adult female silkie doesn't make a lot of noise (she's quieter than a dog for goodness sake lol), and the silkie chicks don't cocka-doodle-do. They make little chirps (I guess until they grow up). We have 30 days from today, 12/19/14, to get rid of all of our animals. I would like to know if there's still a way to keep our silkies, ty.
