Hi, I just found out, much to my delight that my municipal code for my city indicates that I can have up to 5 poultry (under 5 lbs---but who is going to secretly wiegh my birds) on my lot if they are kept in a coop which is regularly cleaned (no smells) and 20 feet away from my neighbors. So now I'm confused... my zoning map of my neighborhood shows that we are not to have livestock-type animals in this area. Which is the higher authority, the municipal code or my zoning code? One of my friendly neighbors seems to think poultry isn't allowed because we aren't zoned, but the municipal code says 5 small poultry within a distanced coop is allowed... My city just had a backyard chickens flyer about how great a little flock is and the only thing they sited as relevant was the municipal code.... ughhhhhhhh! I don't know if I'm legal or illegal anymore! And on top of that someone said there was some statute of limitation wherein if I have poultry for 4 years and nobody complains, but after which time if they do complain, they have no case bacause they knew about it for 4 years... I'm so lost.
