My wife and I went to court Friday Oct 24th and defended ourselves for 3 hrs against the charge we were farming on less than 5 acres with our 3 pet hens. Its in the Judges hands now and we are waiting for his decision. Are 3 hens farming or house pets? There are many excellent opinions and there is no right answer. I think we have a 50/50 shot at keeping them. House pet is undefined and subjective and therefore unconstitutional however he explained that he is a Municipal Judge and only a Superior Judge can make that call. That would require an appeal which could cost hundreds of dollars for a transcript.
