I recently moved to Des Moines, WA from seattle and I learned the law here is crazy inaccessible. Only rich folks with tons of money and landland w be able to make it work. Something like 20k square foot requirements?!? It's insanely prohibitive compared to neighboring towns. Many of my neighbors keep hens but of course we would rather be loud and proud! The city seems to have a don't ask don't tell policy thus far. I have one neighbor that is kind of a busybody, though.
