A few years ago, there were no chicken laws here in Evansville, IN. Then some prominent businessman went before City Council, because his neighbor had chickens. Supposedly, it was a LOT of chickens, right outside his window. Anyway, the Council imposed an ordinance that limits a household to 6 adult chickens and no limit on chicks 8 weeks and under. No mention of roosters, but in the Council's meeting minutes, it is mentioned that chicken owners will be allowed to breed their own chickens. The allowance of roosters is implied. The ordinance itself says 6 adult chickens. No mention of roosters either, BUT on the application for a $5 annual chicken license, it says "6 poultry (chickens, ducks, pigeons)-- NO ROOSTERS". How can the application enforce something that's not in the ordinance? And how can Animal Control enforce it? They DO enforce this this non-law. Animal Control always has roosters on their property that have been confiscated. Isn't that illegal search and seizure??
