I already know that I'm not supposed to have chickens on my property because of my zoning (R-1 Rural Residential). However I'm on a little under 5 acres and alot of the property around me is zoned AG. I'm on a lake and looking at zoning maps, it looks like all of the lake front are R-1, but everything else is AG. My question is, do you think I should go ahead and get some chickens or try to change the laws. My immediate neighbor said he'd like to get his own as well, so he wouldn't be a problem. The neighbor on the other side of him is a busybody and called on the new neighbor because his burn pile was too close to a stucture (the guy with the burn piles metal garage) by 10'. He's also called on me before for target practicing in the yard. Thats the main reason why I just don't do it. OTH if I try to get it changed I'm drawing attention to myself and I'm sure the code guys will be stopping by for a look from time to time since they're there anyway for a new house going up a few doors down.
