    Hi-
    I'm looking for other backyard Chicken owners like myself who would be interested in trying to get the city ordinance changed.

    Thanks

    The problem is the ordinance calls for 50 ft from a coop to the any dwelling. Most of Tracy homes are in subdivisions so that is really hard to do. I want to try and change it to 25ft like in the city of Manteca.

    That's a great idea I don't think that's fare if we don't even have enough room !!!! It's like they don't want us to have chickens ! And why 50 feet what's there reasoning ??? Did someone complain ??? Why would someone complain anyway

    Yeah someone complained. I had a really loud hen, no louder than the little dogs that bark at all hours but I was given a warning by animal control and told to remove my poultry unless I could comply with the ordinance. I am 50' from the 3 of my 4 neighbors and that 4th neighbor doesn't mind he actually likes the sounds since he would raise chickens as a child.

    IMO you might want to initially consider pushing for the normal 'shed' or 'out building' property line setback distance already found in the building codes as a starting point, then compromise to 25ft if they won't budge on that proposal or as a sign of good faith on your part to compromise if they compromise...
