So the letter came in the mail today saying I have 15 days to get rid of my chickens. I've had them for a year now and only today does a letter come. It says they've been notified that I have chickens....makes it sound like someone complained. I'm not sure what to do. My kids are so upset and frankly I've shed a couple tears. I read the ordinances for my area prior to starting this venture. There wasn't a whole lot there which made me think I was ok. They define animal husbandry as raising livestock or poultry for meat or by product as a business or for financial gain. I do not sell my eggs. And they define a pet as an animal for pleasure not profit. Again, I don't sell my eggs. I have no rooster so I don't breed. There is a reference to the number of poultry you can have in a low density population area but there is no mention of poultry in the medium population district which is where I live. They referenced the small population district wording in my letter. If it's not listed at all can they argue that it's then not allowed? I don't even know what to do at this point. I feel like the little guy never wins in these situations. Does anyone have any advice?
