So, I talked to the codes guy at city hall yesterday,and asked if I could keep chickens. He said Sure! In yer freezer!! Boy, he should be writing for Leno!! I wanted to say something back, but I kept my cool. I don't want to antagonize....yet. I guess I will have to go stealth, paint my coop camo, and try to find little masks for all the chicks. Stuff like that. But, in the meantime, any advice out there on fighting city hall? I've already had go- rounds with them on trash removal for our apartment building, snow removal on our street, broken water pipes in the street they wanted me to fix after they broke it, etc, etc, etc. When I called about chix, I was vague as to where I live, so they won't be up here poking around. I already talked to the neighbors, and they don't mind. In fact the neighbor closest told me to make sure I have roos to keep the girls happy! She's an old hippie!! The biggest problem I will have here is keeping the wild turkey herd (yes, herd) out of my runs. So, any advice??
