I live in Hopewell Va, and after having my chickens since2011, I was informed by ac that I have too many chickens (17) , law says 4. I did my research before getting the first chick, and at that time, I was told I could have roosters, no limit on # , I only had to provide a fenced area and housing that protected them. Now I'm fighting to keep what I have and only have til this weekend unless the city attorney lengthens the time til I get a definite answer of yes or no. I've had no complaints from any of my neighbors the entire time- it was an off-duty cop looking to rent next door that called in on me!! The ordinance was passed in 2012, a year after I got them. Does anyone know if I can definitely get grandfathered in here- it seems no one at the city can give me a straight answer at this time.... If worst comes to worst, I am only able to cull 1 or 2 per weekend, when my husband is home..we just don't have freezer space for that many at once! Any help is appreciated!!
