Has anybody had problems with their HOA regarding backyard chickens? In my city and state (Albuquerque, NM), they're legal. I only have 3 hens, so there's no noise problems. But my HOA governing documents say “no animals, livestock, horses, insects or poultry of any kind shall be kept, raised, or bred in the Subdivision.” I know each HOA is different, but if you came across this problem, what did you do? Did you try to fight it? Talk the HOA to make an excemption? Or just gave in and got rid of your chickens?
