This is the reason why I wouldn’t do it because why risk it when it clearly states they’re not allowed. Whether someone puts diapers on their chicken or not they’re barnyard animals. They’re not a pet, that was not their original intent. Humans have changed what a chicken is considered. They were never classified as a pet until not long ago.Have you considered working on changing the ordinance to allow hens? It's going to be heartbreak when your covert coop gets discovered and you have to rehome your hens.
Not saying it’s wrong to have them as a pet because the meaning of a chicken has changed in the human eye.
I have pet chickens but they live outside. I’m not letting them live inside with my dogs and cat. They have their home in their massive coop outside.
I see chickens as pets and food for my family... I have my pet chickens I use for breeding to create our families meat chickens. It’s enjoyable to me. All my breeders have names and they come to their names. I have so many gorgeous roosters, they don’t fight either.
I live in an agricultural area so chickens are no issue here. If it was the rules I couldn’t have them, I wouldn’t.
