Yesterday I got got a notice saying the birds had to be gone by Friday or they would come pick them up. It said that chickens are not allowed in the city which is not true. The ordinances say not within 50ft of a residence and as I live on downtown main street and technically in a commercial area they were not within 1000 ft of a "residence". Also they didn't put the notice on my door but on the front of of a business three doors down! What if I had never gotten it and they had just showed up and taken them without me noticing!!! Anyway, all seven of my itty bitty 2lbs babies are now roughing it at hubby's brothers place in the country (possibilty of being eaten by coyote is high!) I'm going to try and appeal this but this stupid city is so backwards I knew they would come pick them up on Friday one way or another. And our shelter gives animals only three days to live! I feel singled out. This is a small country town with who know how many chickens, goats, and other farm animals in the "poor" part of town. But my prim pristine pigeon sized ladies who are so quiet yoou don't know they are there are not allowed! I am so so sad! Those girls are very dear to me! And very very angry at how this was handled!
