So, here is my dilemma! I want to have chickens badly. I want to have them for pets as well as enjoying the eggs! I had chickens when I was a small girl and want my three daughters to enjoy this experience as well. I checked my CCR's and it states, "absolutely no poultry!" BUT!!!! This is what the city lists as it ordinance. Do you think if I got the Chickies and got "found out" that I could sucessfully fight this issue based on these City statutes? I would HATE to make the investment and fall in love and then find out that I cannot keep them. I live in Chula Vista, CA in the Eastlake area. Does anyone know of anyone else who has a backyard flock in this area? 6.04.080 Rabbits, domestic fowl and pigeons Quantity permitted.
