Hi. I am looking for any advice or personal experiences with having to rehome chickens. I have had chickens for almost 4 years. Prior to doing so we asked the current mayor of our (small) town if we could and he basically said we could, unofficially. We went around to our surrounding neighbors and all were fine with it. After all of this time, our neighbors directly behind us decided to call the police instead of coming to us and started all of this upset. This was last year at this time. Since then, I received a ticket from our towns ordinance guy, appeared in court and was ordered to rehome within 30 days or pay $250. I will wait the full 30 days, for sure!! I want to try to change the ordinance. So many people have them and it would be nice to to so without fear of getting caught. BUT, this takes time. Are there any loopholes? I've even considered bringing some of my little ones inside and let them out when my neighbors aren't home! I have 1 silkie, one polish bantam , 1 Millie Fleur d'Uccle Bantam, 2 EE and 1 black australorp. I even have emotional support animals in mind. I know that has been taken advantage of, but i could definitely sell it if it works! I have a diagnosis I am medicated for as well as PTSD, my son is diagnosed anxiety and tourettes, i have 2 daughters with dyslexia and adhd and one with ptsd from what she went through in our school district before we got her out. We have issues in our house(LOL!!) and the chickens are surprisingly soothing to us. They've all been with us and handled from birth. even my kids friends are devastated! In addition to all of that, we get a ton of eggs that have really saved us $ at the store. They are quite cost effective! With all of our legal and related bills dealing with my girls dyslexia, having a healthy and free protein source has been lifesaving! Any kind/helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!
