I have an acre lot in the country, with several other 1 acre properties on the road. we are surrounded by farmlands on all sides. I bought my property 6 years ago and I never was notified or signed off on any coven laws. Today one of my neighbors showed up and told me that I can't keep chickens as they are livestock. According to some coven law that is attached to the property no one can keep livestock and he has a lawsuit going on with the neighbor down the road who has goats, chickens,ducks and horses. Before I ordered the chickens or built the chicken house I asked at the county records office and there was no restrictions listed on the property. I just finished my coop and my chickens were shipped today! How can I be held to a property law I was never notified of at the time of buying the property? I'm in Crittenden county, Arkansas. I bought it from the owner of the development who never said a thing about a coven law. What can I do? Edited to clarify coven law means covenent law.
