Hi. I apologize for the silly username. I tried several and they were taken. Anyway the situation I have is a week ago I bought 3 hens. I have them in the coop only. No outside run. My 8 yr. old was exited about getting them and told his class. It made its way down the line to city hall. Small town North Dakota 800 ppl. Today I got a letter saying " no poultry shall run at large within city limits" also any such shall be no closer than 75 ' from any dwelling. I have a half acre lot. I'm more than 75 feet away and the hens have not stepped on my grass. They are quiet and can't be seen from road. Frustrated !!!
