    Our town said "no livestock" and they told us chickens count as livestock, no ifs ands or buts.... so we got them to change the code of ordinance: now we can have up to 6 hens, no roosters in town.

    haha! I found out it is illegal to have poultry in my part of town, even though I bought our chicks at the feedstore 3 blocks from my house! I talked to city council but it may take 3 years to change. I am talking to the city (not the council, well - maybe, depends on what the city says) tommorrow to see what's up. My neighbors like my chickies though so I have no concerns.
