I had to sell my intire flock of girls. The city of Pataskala ohio claimed that we live on business comercial property (middle of 8 acres)and the keeping of livestock was not permitted- not even my 12yr olds banties. We are renting and the land lord was not going to grant his permission for a variance on the land. They wanted to fine us 100 a day till we got rid of them so I sold them and lost money and my little friends. Its hard when youv'e cared for something from a day old till they laid their first egg.
