We got a letter today saying there has been a complaint about chickens and goats on our property. It is a form letter with a part to fill in the complaint and it says: Your city ordinance allows 14 chickens in coops backyard, no goats, no roosters. Needless to say, I am slightly ticked about this. Mostly because I looked up our city ordinance before we even looked at getting goats and it says (among other unrelated things): It shall be unlawful for any person to keep, maintain or permit to be maintained any of the following on any premises within the city: (4) Male goats It says nothing else about goats anywhere that I can find. We do not have male goats, roosters, or more than 14 chickens. I am going to call humane tomorrow and ask them about it, but right now I am just assuming they are misinformed about the code. If there is some bit of code somewhere else that says I can't have them, I am really going to be ticked. I went through all the code they have online, so unless it is in some code you can only see by going to city hall, I can't see how they can make us get rid of them. The neighbors who complained (I am assuming it is the neighbors to the south of us), are generally just jerks who haven't liked us since we moved in. I am really going to feel good when we get to keep the goats despite their objections.
