Having 3 beautiful birds, raised, named and (which I consider "household pets" and recently building a clean, contained and comfortable coop, I have been notified by my HOA president that I am in voilation of having my chickens and my "coop" on my property. His letter states this violation: Provided that such us does not create any condition conflicting with the residential nature of the subdivision, the following animals may be raised or kept on the property: 1. Household pets, such as cats, dogs and birds. 2. Livestock raised as a supervised public school project, for so long as used for a school project. 3. Horses and cattle, provided that a total of no more than one head per acre of area (with the size of the lot rounded either up or down to the nearest even acre) is kept on the lot. Otherwise, no animals may be raised or maintained on any lot." I have had my birds since chicks, a gift from my son. Cared for in my home or garage since chicks and only recently when I interpreted the deed restrictions to allow my birds as pets I moved them to my yard. Now I have 7 days to remove my birds AND the COOP from the subdivisioin entirely!! They also state, to place the coop or birds in my garage would not satisfy the requirements of the restrictions. The restrictions also DO NOT make reference to any consequences for being in violation, but I know that the (voluntary payment) of this association has had prior law suits against owners for other violations. Does this look anything like a winning fight with the vagueness of the verbiage and how can they demand removal of my coop? The restrictions have no restriction with regard to coops with such verbiage. Hmmmmm. Makes me feel nauseous. I live in a large acreage custom home subdivision in a small south Texas country town. I LOVE THE INFORMATION IN THIS WEBSITE! It is delightful and thanks kindly for your opinions.
