    always changing
    Send a letter back stating your chickens are grandfathered in!!

    Oh no!!! I can't imagine they can take them away if you had them prior to the zoning.... do what ibpboo said! We had a family right in town that had chickens, goats, cows etc. When I asked how they could, they explained it was because it had been a farm before the town grew up around it and since they had ALWAYS kept the farm animals there, they were grandfathered in to have them even though they were against ordinances!

    Good luck! Sending you energy and blessings!!!!

    yea you should be grandfathered in and if not Request Reasonable time !!!!!

    explain eggbid value Are you a little radical -just a little down deep ?

    Sue them in small claims court for the market value of the birds and the action which did not represent you - um mass has a history with legislation without rep !
    that action cause is negligence

    I would love to get all your silkie chicks, but....I am in Georgia. However, You need to fight that, because you ARE grandfathered in, whether your neighbor likes the chickens or not. Don't give up !
