I had a visit from code enforcement the other day. I was told that someone had complained about my rooster. I was also told that code enforcement already knew I had chickens but "they had let it slide" but now since the complaint I had to get rid of my chickens because I was breaking the city ordinance. She tried to tell me that I couldn't have my chickens within 75ft of my neighbors property. I promptly told her they would have to take me to court because I know the ord. and I am well within my rights to keep my chickens right where they are. I also informed her that she was wrong, and that the ord. says I have to be no less than 75ft from my neighbors home. I asked her if they were going to send someone out to measure the distance from my chickens to my nearest neighbors house. To which she said they don't do that they just look at their maps. That's strange my chickens are not on those maps. So I asked how they would be able to prove that I am to close in court. She told me they just look at it and can tell and that she thought I wasn't the min 75ft away. I told her nobodys eyes are calibrated, she did laugh at that and agreed. She ended up saying she would have to go re-read the ord and left. I measured and the closest point on my chickens run is 89ft from the closest neighbors home. So here is the link to Chapter 18 Article III of the Leavenworth, Kansas, Code of Ordinances. Sec 18-94 and Sec 18-95 are the areas that cover domestic fowl. http://library.municode.com/index.aspx?clientId=11145&stateId=16&stateName=Kansas If you live in Leavenworth, KS don't let anyone tell you, you can't have your birds.
