    Hi Everyone,
    I was upstairs when i notice that my chickens were making noise. It must of been loud because people on the street were looking at out house. Here chickens are illegal unless you have 2 acres. But people where looking, i am so scared that someone is going to call the police. I am regretting of having chickens. [​IMG]

    Quite a few native bird species sound like chickens. [​IMG]

    Imp- maybe they were curious chicken fans.

    Quote:Where do you live? I work animal control for a major city in Texas. Honestly, I have more important things to worry about than outlaw chickens, BUT unless I can see the violation without stretching up, or climbing up on something to look over a barrier or something, there is nothing I can do about it. If you have a coop in plain sight, and I don't see chickens, I cannot do anything. No proof, no crime. If I have to look over a privacy fence (IE-no gaps or holes I can look through), any ticket I write you will not stand up in court.

    If they come around, and your chickens are in the house for example, they cannot force you to let them in your house, or show them your birds. Without more information, I couldn't give you any further insight, but I wouldn't worry yet. Chances are, even if they call in on you, whoever comes out will give you a warning, and tell you to remove the birds by the time they come and recheck.

    As For Your Neighbors... Befriend Them And Ask If They Have A Problem With Certain Pets. But Tell Them One Of Your Grandfathers Is Really Ill And You've Offered To Take Care Of His Beloved Friends. That You Were The Only On He Trusted With Them... May Work??
