Chickens are allowed in my city- just check with neighbors for an OK and pay for the permit...$75! I checked with my neighbors- no problem! Hey can we come over and see them? Why yes of course, and I'll give you eggs! Got to thinking about the permit. Pay $75 bucks for what? The city does nothing for me. I compost, recycle and use natural fertilizers. I have a completely predator proof coop and a predator proofed 6' cedar privacy fence around my large backyard. Permit? I ain't buying no steenkin permit! They can weasel all the other taxes out of me, but this one is nothing but a snarky way of taking money for nothing.
