So it's my own fault, but I heard from friends in my city who has previously kept chickens in our city that they were legal (up to 5/6 birds in the city) however after reading a news article today (on the benefits of farm fresh eggs, go figure) it said that the author checked with the city and they ARE NOT allowed to be raised in the city. WHAT NOW? Our coop is small and we only have four birds however our yard is open to public viewing (until our cedars grow) we're next to a school and have three neighbours and a highrise behind us. What can I start doing now to prepare myself for a potential fight? And when I go to the city, what paperwork do I ask for to read up on the code and if there are any loop holes. I'm hoping no one will notice or say anything, and we already spoke to our one neighbour who won't have a problem but until we can start bribing with eggs (they're only 6 weeks old) I will live in fear. FEAR I SAY! MY BABIES! Yes, I'm an alarmist... HELP!
