    I have read the code... its very confusing.. I saw in a lot of blog posts we can have 5 chickens, no roosters. I already ordered and paid for my coop, my baby chicks are getting bigger and I really want to do this... but Im nervous about getting in trouble. Can anyone help?

    "It shall be unlawful for any person to keep, raise and/or maintain within the city, chickens, ducks, geese or other fowl, horses, mules, cows, swine, including potbellied pigs, goats, sheep or other livestock and grazing animals, except that cows and other grazing livestock may be kept and maintained as part of an approved public environmental and agricultural education use in the ALI-A2, zoning district. "

    I think that you're pretty clearly prohibited from raising and/or maintaining within the city... chickens. [​IMG]
