I live in a very small city, there is not even a mayor. I have been to the town hall 3 times asking for info about keeping chickens and every time they just tell me that I can't have chickens so I don't need the papers. I asked if the ordinances were online and was told no then ignored. I am at a loss for what to do. I am not a confrontational person by any means and I am shocked I have had the guts to go up there that many times. My hubby said he will go to the office and be the bad guy but I really don't want to do that. I also have meat rabbits that are in plane view and do not know the laws about those. I started with just 3 and raise them more like pets but now counting the babies there are 15, so it's getting to be a bit much to hide or pass off as pets. My hubby says I am being paranoid but I have read of people getting big fines for having just a few animals they shouldn't have. Sorry for rambling. well if anyone has any tips, ideas or a really good search bar that would be great. I live in Maysville, NC on the Jones co. side. It is within city limits but I don't know about the zoning codes or anything like that.
