I got really excited about having backyard chickens when I learned I could do so within the Tulsa city limits. However, I wanted to make sure I was following the ordinance properly, so I contacted the Animal Welfare office. When I spoke to them, I found out that not only do I have to put screening (such as on a house window) around every square inch of the coop and run, but I also must make the floor of the run something that is "easily cleanable," such as cement. I inquired about a portable run, because I'd like the ladies to be able to be moved around the yard while not in their coop, and I was told that wouldn't be possible because, once again, the floor would have to be cement or something else that cleans up easily. I am not in an AG area of the city limits, but I have read information from others in Tulsa, and there has never been a mention of the screening or the cement floor. While I understand the need to keep their permanent coop and run clean, I don't understand why they should be made to live on nothing but cement floors for their entire life...it just seems cruel! Any other Tulsans out there who can tell me if they've had any issues about this?
