    I just bought a chicken tractor. I live within the city limits of Spokane WA and I am having trouble finding the rules on where I can locate it.

    I did find that coops have to follow setback limits. For me that would be 20ft from front property, 5 feet from side property line, and since I have an alley I get 0 feet from property line in back.

    That said, those rules are for fixed buildings. This has wheels. I do plan to park it quite a bit due to weight, but I am not sure if the impermanence of my coop (wheelbarrow handles and wheels) relieve me of the zoning because it kinda looks like it's for a permanent structure. Does anyone in Spokane have any experience with this?
