    Ok so this is what our ordinance says in the beautiful city of Deltona...

    Sec. 14-3. Prohibited animals.
    (a) Specific animals. It shall be unlawful to keep, maintain or raise in the city the following animals:
    (1) Any artiodactyla (even toed) or Perissodactyla (odd toed) ungulate, including but not limited to animals in the genus Bos (cows), all species; Ovis (sheep), all species; and Capra (goats), all species; and all other hoofed animals.
    (2) Any animal belonging to the family Phasianidae or family Anatidae, all species, including but not limited to, chickens, roosters, turkeys, peacocks, geese and ducks...
    (b) Exceptions. Subsection (a) of this section is not intended to apply and it is an exception to those provisions regarding the keeping of prohibited animals if:
    (1) The prohibited animals are being kept at a zoological park or animal shelter licensed and operating in accordance with this Code.
    (2) The prohibited animals are trained guard animals or trained law enforcement animals and are maintained by a law enforcement agency and used exclusively by the law enforcement agency in fulfilling its duties...

    So after weeks of trying to find a way around it, he's come up with this...


    We could train him to sniff out marijuana and he could be a drug sniffing chicken!!! [​IMG]

    Smart kid!

    And cute house, by the way.... [​IMG]

    Don't do the marijuana, though. Then you'll just get busted for having pot!
    He could be a burglar alarm, investigator, and police chief all rolled into one.

    Sweet. Call him a home alarm system. For the early detection of intruders thus ensuring the safety of the family. I mean, he does crow when disturbed right? :p

    Recognition makes me blush [​IMG]

    I dunno about you guys, but if I saw a chicken in full police uniform brandishing a nightstick, I'd pick a different house to burglarize. :hmm

    Unless, of course, I was REALLY hungry. [​IMG]

    This is Cinnamongirl's son, for those who dunno.

    Get a really fancy looking type - like a Silkie or Serama and call it a rare Malaysian ground parrot...
    or an Old English Game Bantam hen and call it a dove [​IMG]

    ^^You gave me an idea!^^
    I was thinking I'd put in a little "Beware of..." sign in the yard of the picture...
    But now all I can do is giggle at "Beware of [otherwordforrooster]".... and the horrible things a sign like that would imply.
