Things are getting pretty ugly here in Nebraska when it comes to the 'Great Chicken Chase.' Family after family is being cited for having backyard chickens. Wednesday 1 Bellevue family got cited and then the news did a piece about the citation, then several families after that were cited. Friday they came knocking on our door and we not only got cited for having chickens but for a '67 Cougar, 2 tires and a blow-up pool in our driveway and then the news aired a piece about our chickens. Code enforcement told me, to my face, and I quote, "You have 30 days to remove the chickens from your property or we will come and forceably remove them ourselves! Have a good day!" After that comment and then finding out I was cited for a baby pool I freaked out on the guy and kicked him off our property and then he attempted to enter my GATED backyard!!! Needless to say things got pretty verbal and the fight is really on now! The chicken lovers in Bellevue, Nebraska are coming together and planning a meeting to gather information to fight city council. The good thing is my husband and I met an attorney, by chance, who has offered to represent the families in Bellevue, FOR FREE, who are trying to fight city council. So far things are looking ok but I'm still worried code enforcement will show up at my front door again when I'm home alone with the kids. We have posted 6 'No Trespassing' signs around our property and on our coop but is there something more I should do to protect our rights, our family and our property???
