So I thought it was ok for me to have chickens and small livestock this whole time... Come to find out today that there is apparently a covenance in this "development" which basically reads like an association without the fees with everything from the color of your sheds to the type of fence up to only being allowed 1 dog and 2 cats! (I'm not exaggerating. I should note that this neighborhood consists of 3 acre lots and is out in the country and the county says it's zoned agricultural.) We specifically asked our realtor when we looked at this place and she said that there was no restrictions on this property. I even called the county before I got chickens and asked and they said there was nothing other than no LARGE livestock on less than 5 acres, but I guess I didn't dig deep enough or talk to the "right" person at the court house. Now this isn't a problem unless someone complains is what one of our neighbors said, but one neighbor out of 8 others is a jerk and I can see him turning us ALL in for animal, shed color and pet violations. All this on top of we just built a new shed for a couple of goats that I'm getting in August! So we're going to be illegal. I'm dispatching my last 2 roos, one I'm rather fond of, just to not draw any more attention to our activities than necessary. I'm keeping the hens and still plan to get the goats, by then we'll have a privacy fence up that hopefully will deter any trouble. That being said, is there any way to get a covenance changed?
