    I am hoping someone from Stockton can enlighten me. I have read a law that says that in the city of Stockton, you cannot legally keep chickens or fowl of any kind, exotic birds, or even reptiles. How accurate is this information? I am asking because our landlords are selling the house we presently live in over here in Sacramento. However, they have another house in Stockton they're willing to rent to us, and they have no problem with us having chickens.

    I cannot find any laws/ordinances regarding fowl for San Joaquin County (i.e., outside of Stockton city limits... this house *may* be outside the city limits & I will find out for sure today or tomorrow).

    Just trying to cover all my bases and hoping to get a response from someone who lives there.
