We recently started having backyard chickens in Oconomowoc, WI. We spoke with the police department who informed us we could have 5 chickens in the yard as long as none were roosters. We purchased 5 chicks this spring and have enjoyed raising them. Recently, a neighbor reported us and now the city says we have to get rid of them. The neighbor was in no way bothered by them- they are quiet, don't smell, were kept in a coop with a small run, and aren't even near his property line. Any advice? Is there anyone else out there in Oconomowoc who has successfully been able to keep chickens? Would we be able to get a variance? Any help would be appreciated. Our children love them and we were so looking forward to getting fresh eggs- as was one of our other neighbors.
