Phew! Finally able to log in! Nope neighbor. Can't keep 'em. Interesting information I did get though. The people north of me (north of Greenway) with the acreage also did not have permission to have chickens and it was recently changed to allow it. Meanwhile, the city is in the process of revising their codes/ordinances since this has not been done since 1993. They left all the chicken codes alone because they say that they had no idea that anyone was interested. The process is not finished and I need to decide if I want to and am able to take this on. We need to have bodies show up to council meetings and have petitions of people stating that they would like to keep chickens. I need to find out how to make an on-line petition that will give the signers general whereabouts without giving the city a revenue generating list of people trying to keep chickens under the radar. I have to get rid of the chickens by Tuesday and last weekend I just was not ready to part with them. My first pick is not answering her phone anymore or responding to e-mail - maybe she went on vacation or something. So basically I have today and tomorrow to get rid of them because suddenly Monday got booked up with doctor appointments and she lives out in Queen Creek. Ack! I had plenty of other respondents but she was first and best so now I am in a pinch because I don't want her to call me Sunday night and I picked someone else on the list. It is so amazing how many different ideas people have. This a.m. I was out front pulling a handful of weeds for the babies to eat and a block watch lady came by. She kept talking so after awhile I did mention it and she had thought that it was legal to have 3 in our neighborhood. I really try to keep my son involved with animals because he is not good at school but very good and intuitive with animals. His friend came over yesterday when it was time to put the babies in their box for the night. (Their sleeping quarters never got finished once we got cited.) They cry to go in the box - they know when it is time. Anyways his friend is a rough punk ready for anything kind of guy but he could not cope with holding a chicken! It was the funniest thing and he got teased alot and finally he did hold the last one. Anyways, this is one family project that is being killed by the city.
