Not a fun morning. Was visited by police and someone from the village. We had chickens several years ago and go t them again last year. We asked at village hall if we could/couldn't and the only paperwork they could give us about chickens was that they couldn't be dyed any colors. I followed up (on my own ) with this guy at the village and he told me I couldn't have any farm animals or bees, but he couldn't or wouldn't give me any paperwork. He said it had something to do with the state code and he would have to go looking to find it. I called our village council representative and he said it was Ok. So now, more than a year later I am told to get rid of them in 10 days because they "aren't allowed". I asked if there had been a complaint and he said yes, but I doubt it is any of my neighbors because we give all of them eggs at least once a month and no one has ever had a problem. We did have to put a tarp over the chicks because we have had so much rain lately, but the appearance of something is not the same as not being allowed to have them. Here is what is highlighted on the village ordinances (that the police gave me this morning): (C)For purposes of this chapter, HARBORING OF AN ANIMAL means allowing any animal or fowl habitually to remain, be lodged or fed within any dwelling, yard or enclosure occupied or owned by the pwerson harboring such animal or fowl. The rest if the section lists nuisance conditions- damaging or defecating on others properties, public property, abandoning, injuring, cruelty, etc. Do you think that (C) says that ANY animal, including chickens are forbidden? To me, it is just giving clarification of to the term harboring an animal, which if that is the case, almost seems to say these nuisance ordinances are for ANY animal OR fowl???? What do you think? What should I do? I haven't been real well lately, don't know if I have it in me to petition etc.
