Just recently i was looking at the ordinance of my area because it really and honestly never occurred to me that keeping chickens is illegal. Well guess what it is But thats not really my problem, my problem is i have to hide them from the inspector thats coming to check on unfinished shed that we are building and will hide our coop from everyone but he wont be checking just once he'll be checking multiple times and the other problem is the neighbors . I have them outside in a little box with a run attached and they seem to be fine with the small space no picking no nothing and all healthy and all hidden on the side of my house. I really want to tell my neighbors but im affraid that they might turn me in if the inspector doesnt! So my ?s are what can i do and also has anyone had neighbors snitch on them after you told them you have chickens? P.S. I live on three plus acres of land with a farm in my backyard...literally hes farming on some of our land with beans, corn, and cattle and we cant get it back because they said hes been there longer even though my parents are paying theyre tax dollars on it and our coop is nowhere near anyone of our neighbors homes just so you know and we are getting rid of our rooster sometime (actually until he crows).
