So, I'm investigating the Sunnyvale Municipal Codes for animals. Chickens are mentioned in two places: 6.16.090. Animals near residences. It is unlawful for any person to pen, enclose, or otherwise confine, any chicken, duck, pigeon, or any other bird or fowl, within twenty-five feet of an inhabited residence without the written consent of the occupant of such residence. It is unlawful for any person to stake, tie, or otherwise confine, any animal, except a dog, within two hundred feet of an inhabited residence, without the written consent of the occupant of such residence. (Ord. 1628-71 § 2 (part): prior code § 5-1.409). 6.16.015. Nuisances by animals. (b) It is unlawful for any person to keep any rabbits, chickens, pigeons, hogs or pigs or goats, or cows or any animal or any fowl or birds in any pen, building, yard or enclosure within the city, in such a manner that the same becomes or is a nuisance. Does this mean I can keep a rooster as long as the neighbor doesn't object?? Anyone have an educated opinion?
