So I am "less than legal", I live in city limits and I am not ignorant of the laws. I live on over an acre, on the edge of the city. My neighbors all have 1+ acres and I know them pretty well. My Mother is on one side of me, I grew up there and I know her neighbors and their neighbor "muscle car guy". On the other side of me is a couple that also have chickens, they are freinds of ours and we help eachother out alot. There is no house past them, They have owned chickens for 11 years and I have for 2 years. Behind us in an elderly gentleman that I drink and shoot the breeze with sometimes, he enjoys the chickens and I give him eggs when I see him. I don't know the other guy behind me, but have been told he has no problems and he probably has the best veiw of them. So basicly I believe that I am 100% with my neighbors. I did ask the neighbors who already had chickens if they would have an issue with me haveing them before I got them, I did not want to draw attention to them. They said to go for it, they recently bought a property nearby that is in the county for garden/more chickens etc. They said that they don't think I will have an issue and even if I do no problem. I have 9 birds and I am not sure how many they have next door, but we will say more than I have. (They also have a large flock at their property and were happy to take my rooster I got on accident out there. ) I have considered talking to city council Etc. about the subject and support a local group of people in my city who are trying to get the ordinance banning them changed. The issue I have is that I have not had any problems, and I don't want any. I don't want to go drawing attention to myself, and the group is only pushing for 4 birds. The city has been less than reasonable about it to them, and say they think that chickens are farm animals and that there is not enouph support to change the law. I did have the police over a couple of times because of a theft problem and they are wise to what I got. I also had a city council member come to my house trying to get votes, pretty sure he knows whats up, but still no issues. Just wondering what you guys think about this? Say something now and risk attention, or stay quiet as long as possible and battle them when the time comes. I would cause a scene if they did harass me.
