    Hello, All!
    I've been a lurker on BYC for a few months now. I have some potentially illegal chickens in my rural residential backyard but can't get straight answers from our County. I don't live in the city limits and there are cattle that live nearby so I hope that our girls don't cause a fuss.
    I have been a lifelong chicken fanatic and would be willing to go to the mat (so to speak) to change local chicken ordinances if need be so please feel free to share your experiences on how you have fought "the law" on backyard chicken keeping.
    Thanks, everyone!!

    the cattle must be legal since they're highly visible...can't miss them if you tried.
    the trouble is that we live in a small development right in between open farm land. perhaps the other livestock are "grandfathered" in?
    i'm feeling awfully nervous because my DH said he saw police looking into our backyard today from the road. they can't see anything from where they were standing.
    we recently installed a 100w infrared bulb to keep our babies from freezing during a cold snap (they're only about 9 weeks old) and i think one of our neighbors (the only ones who don't know!) saw the red light from their house and wondered what we had going on.
