I got a notice this morning that it is unlawful to keep any fowl at my residence, but before I got any chickens I checked the ordinance and it said up to 10 as long as they are housed 25 ft away from a residence. This ordinance was changed as of 3-01-07 and I got chickens around 03-20-08 but they never updated the ordinance until recently. The notice says that our rooster is being a nuisance, but when I called animal control they said I have to get rid of any hens too. I know for a fact that my neighbors do not mind my rooster, and unfortunately our backyard butts up with city services and animal control. I am heartbroken at the thought of having to give up all of my chickens. One is blind in one eye and needs me to make sure she eats. I have no idea what we are going to do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After careful consideration, and an add on craigslist, I found a really nice lady who will take most of them in. I say most because I am trying to work with the city manager to let me keep three of my hens. My first three, they are very close to our family's heart. I wrote the city manager a letter and I will be depositing it to her tommorow wish me luck everyone!!!!!
