My neighbor across the street ( I'll call her "Peggy") is having issues with their backyard neighbors (who we ALL have issues with) and the jerky neighbor decided to complain about Peggy's 6 10-week-old pullets. The Jerks actually screamed at her "YOU CAN'T HAVE CHICKENS IN THE CITY!" First of all, we are outside of city limits. Secondly, these birds have the cleanest and most protective setup I've seen. Thirdly, out of our entire neighborhood, this is the first time anyone has had an issue (and I've had roosters, AND there was a chicken farm less than a half mile down the road only a few years ago. Also, the other neighbors miss my roo so much, they begged me to get another!) So, Peggy went to find the codes. When the inspector came by, not only was she ready for him, but he was impressed at her coop, knowledge and whatnot. If The Jerks wanna bark, here's what Peggy found, and I'm sharing it with you all so you know. "15. The number of animals on a particular property shall not exceed one large livestock, three small livestock, five ratites, six small animals, or twelve poultry" Also, "No feeding area or structure or building used to house, confine, or feed livestock, small animals, ratites, or poultry shall be located closer than one hundred feet to any residence on adjacent property located within rural wooded, rural protection, rural residential zones, or within two hundred feet of any residence on adjacent property within any other zone; provided, a pasture (greater than 20,000 square feet) shall not be considered a feeding area."
