I am on 5 acres with pain in the butt neighbors that call zoning for every little thing. Before I take another step, I would love to hear what everyone has to think of the stuff below. I'm trying to locate the fine line and bust through red tape so I can "mate" barred rocks for their eggs, incubate them & sell off 3-5 day old chicks to the local farmers. I am going to have at least 30 chickens of my own (for eggs/pets for my family) in the next couple of months. My "covenant" of rules reads (skipping the filler about swine) .... "LIVESTOCK. Chicken FARMS and commercial LIVESTOCK breeding or raising are not permitted. Horses, cattle, fowl and domestic animals shall be permitted provided that same do not become a nuisance or annoyance to the owners of the other lots." *Livestock ... that is not a chicken. Livestock consists of cows, pigs, goat, sheep, etc. Am I calling this right? *Chicken FARMS ... I do not have a farm. I have a lot of chickens that lay fertile eggs. Incubation of eggs will be done in my home. My house is not a farm. Am I stretching too far or am I truly limited to not incubating eggs? If neighbors find out I am making any form of profit, it's on. Living in the country ... it gets around on who is doing what in the local towns. What yaw'll think? Thanks for any help.
