The board of our HOA met today (I am a member) to discuss my 13 week old chickens. The Cc&R prohibit coops and poultry but allow "household pets such as cats and dogs" so I went prepared with articles, photos and lots of BYC printouts to show that the 30 year old rules are out of date and chickens can be considered household pets. Well, it did not go well. The main concern is that they will lower the property values and no one will buy a house in this community if they know that chickens are allowed. There was a vote by raising hands, but just to answer the question who is opposed, not who is in favor. I don't even know if that was legal. I need to speak to the HOA attorney. She could not attend the meeting. What questions should I ask? I have 30 days to come back and tell them what I am going to do with my girls.
