    go with the "pet" angle.

    and what is that other saying?
    "It is better to ask forgiveness"

    Be prepared though to be "forced" to get rid of them

    We aren't suppose to have them but..........

    I don't think any of my neighbors will complain because I'm right on the boundry line of being able to have them. If I lived across the street behind me or the street beside me it would be ok.

    How about House Chickens?!
    OR
    Silkies can masquerade as rare African Ground Parrots or Mutated Bunnies from Chernobyl...

    We are only supposed to have them if we have five acres or more but the animal control officer told me that they only enforce the rule if someone files a written complaint.

    Yep, in most cases you can pull it off, if you are considerate of your neighbors. Keep your chickens on your property, or be prepared to bribe with lots of free eggs....LOL
