My mom currently resides in a little town (Banquete, TX) which is unincoroporated...we do not have our own police dept (except county) and I'm not able to find out anything about chicken ordinances. We have a few chickens that like to fly out of our large coral and our neighbors who just moved into town from out of state are very displeased that a few of our chickens roam around. I have kept them locked up for months and everytime I let them out...they roost in a tree and fly out. The neighbor has contacted animal control in the next town over and they left my mom a warning saying chickens have to kept in an enclosure...these were left after my grandma passed away last October and I don't want to get rid of them, but I don't want my mom to get in trouble either. Apparently keeping them in a cage is not going to allow them to live out there lives comfortably and they just keep going over to the neighbors since they throw scraps to the trillion cats they own. I don't know what to do...any ideas?
