I'm so mad at my neighbors, I hate it how they complain to the city about something...instead of just telling me in my face so I can fix the problem!!!! Anyways what happened is... I had two roosters..One is a Barred Rock named Captain Potato ...another one is named Captain Jack Sparrow ( he kinda looks like him too ) They recently began to crow... interestingly ( didnt know this before) they crow at....3...am O_O and allll day. So of course one of my neighbors complained to animal control that we have chickens..and roosters.. Animal Control came, It was a lady around mid 30s shes a nice person. She told me that she called the city and they told her I wasnt zoned for chickens then she gave me a two weeks notice to get ride of ALL my beloved chickens. ( have 15) I freaked... I was so mad. why?! why not just tell me you stupid neighbors....I GAVE YOU FREE EGGS!!!? Sadly, I gave away my roosters My boyfriend was sooo sad I know I cant keep them from crowing, (at least they are in good hands) But my girls? I went nuts looking online about our city codes etc...and lo and behold...I'm allowed to have 25 fowls for meat and eggs!! well.....GUESS WHAT my chickens are for eggs too so HAH!! I then called cityhall and asked...(pretending that I dont know anything) if I am zoned for chickens. THEY SAID NO!? I asked them about the codes and they said they will call me back...waited 3 days got fed up and personally went down to city hall to ask them for a printout of the code. Then I pointed out to them what the code says....................are you guys ready for this????? this is what they say to me after seeing what the code says They looked at me....and said "no you are not allowed chickens," then he looked at his coworker and said " chicken isnt considered a fowl....." My...jaws literally dropped to the floor. I tried really hard not to raise my voice. Are you kidding I said? Chickens ARE fowls!!! They are birds...are you saying chickens are not birds? IF they are not fowl/birds THEN WHAT ARE THEY!?!O_O. He just stared at his coworker which then also agreed....nooo ma'am I dont think chickens are considered Fowl... WOOOOOW!!!! I was about to explode. I sooo wanted to say WHERE DID YOU GUYS GO TO SCHOOL!? DID YOU EVEN FINISH FIRST GRADE!? I wanted to buy them a dictionary.... They tried giving me an examples....but i was too angry to hear anything they were saying. They saw me getting worked up and finally said "you know what its okay dont worry about the chicken issue" I didnt even care anymore, I just left. Yesterday animal control showed up again, asked if i still had the rooster, i told her no i gave it away. She asked if I still have chickens? I said yes...I Raise fowls for eggs and meat...its allowed. She left, i smiled...the end Btw about Maggie Shes a RIR Shes totally inlove with Captain Potato, when it rained he put his wing over her to keep her warm and dry, Every morning he takes her for walks with other hens following close behind. He made sure the dogs stays away from her. And always finds worms and leave it for her to eat. He grooms her and sleeps next to her. After I gave Potato away, The very next day........
