The City Council meeting did not go well. They basically said that very few people have contacted them with interest in changing the city code. They did say that one of the "loop-holes" in the current code is that chickens aren't included as "small farm animals" if they are your pets. The other loop-hole would be that animals under 6 months old are also excluded from the code. To me that would mean that you are within the law if your chickens are under 6 months old. [The current code wording-- Section 8-47 ii. Small animal keeping. The minimum site area for the noncommercial, not-for-profit, keeping of small animals, of at least six months of age with a weight of less than 75 pounds at maturity, other than pets, as an incidental use, shall be 10,000 square feet; except that roosters shall be allowed only on a site of 20,000 square feet or larger, or within an RD-1 or RD-2 zoning district.] I will update with the actual video and minutes of the meeting as soon as they post them. I have not heard anything else from the Code Enforcement Department and at this point I am assuming that they have closed my "file".
