Errr, I'm gonna come clean here. I never checked with my small town about keeping chickens. I figured -hey I want 2 chickens for these reasons: 1. they are awfully cute 2. they eat bugs, my little dog has had Lyme disease 3 times 3. cause I want to, and EGGS I did do some snooping on line about codes etc. and according to them the legaleze is, as long as I keep under 4 chickens (poultry, pheasants etc.) and house them appropriately, keep it clean and safe for them, -duh- I shouldn't have a problem with anyone, I think it's neighbors you would have to worry about, Mine seem fine, they don't know yet, I'm really being sneaky here. Have small yard, but there's no looking back now, I'm totally into this chicken thing, darn it. Any other small time criminals out there?
