Well, a nosy neighbor finally did it. After 3.5 years with my same flock, a neighbor had the city come out and tell us we have to get rid of our girls. HEART-BREAKING! We don't have kids...these are our kids! Municipal code was fine, but found out we didn't check the development code that there must be a 70' distance between coop and any inhabitant dwelling. That's an effective ban on chickens in Rancho! What a crock! Began researching and drafting an appeal, but after being laughed at by a coucilman who said, "You're talking about Rancho? Ha!", we've now begun looking at plots of land in other cities My heart is broken and angry.
