    premises of any other person in the City.

    (b) It is hereby declared to be a nuisance, and it shall be unlawful and a municipal offense for any
    person to keep or maintain any chicks, chickens, geese, ducks, turkeys, pigeons, doves or squabs in an
    enclosed structure or building within eight (8) feet of the property line of any adjacent improved lot or

    Edited: Your city, like most, place restrictions on where you can have chickens in the city based on zoning.

    I wonder if this is the same in Pueblo West also?

    Otherwise, I might have to move my dog run before I get chickens/ducks/or whatever I eventually decide to get.
