Ok when I first decided to get chickens I contacted Animal services to find out if they were legal. They said that they were as long as they were contained and that they considered a backyard fence containment. They also said that there was no law against roosters but your neighbors could complain and you may loose him based on him being a nuisance. So I read in several other places that there are no laws against keeping chickens in Memphis TN. So three years later we are having a blast with the chickens then yesterday a friend who also has chickens and has had them for a year got a notice that he was in violation of a zoning law. So he went down to talk them with all of the info from Animal Control and they said "Well you just can't have them", I love these kind of responses. The city worker refused to acknowledge the info from AC. So anyway my friend has hired an attorney and is going to go fight this. So I guess my question is what do we do. Who do we contact to get this changed ETC.... Any help would be great.
