The chickens are going :(

After all the fighting and arguing with the city and all the crap from the neighbor we lost our battle and the chickens have to go. I don't know what the neighbors problem is but for some reason whenever my husband leaves town the neighbor feels the need to harass me. The city has changed the wording on the ordinance and I can no longer keep my chickens. I have 28 days to get rid of all the chickens. I was going to go talk to the neighbor but the police said it would be in my best interest if I didn't approach him. I have no idea what I am going to do with them since we now know that we can't cull the chickens in the city limits. I know that the neighbor isn't going to give up and I am tired of fighting so the chickens are going so if anyone wants a few chickens just let me know.

That sucks :( I hate mean neighbors like that... A few chickens are harmless!

I wish we lived closer, my grandpaw's got a chicken coop, and he'd be glad to give them a good home.

I would be soooo tempted the next time your hubby leaves town, and the neighbors there, I would send my kids outside to cackle and crow, and bawk bawk like chickens, and as loud as they could. No ordinance against that, right?

Sorry, silly people like that with no heart or common sense bug the heck outta me! You guys seem like such nice people, it is very sad someone is doing this to you all!

I'm so sorry. I would have a hard time still being a nice neighbor myself when someone is being that vindictive. I hope you can find good homes for them!

Wait so when did they change it, does that mean we aren't supposed to have them either? I need to know more.

I think your good until someone complains. Make nice with your neighbors and share your eggs and they shouldn't complain. They have re-worded it to say 50 ft from all structure. It used to say 50 ft from adjacent structures but not the named persons (mine) home.

You should post them on Craigs list. I know you will get some hits!! By the way, I haven't ordered your picture yet cause I need to make the order bigger. I will do it soon. Do you need it anytime soon?

You can't list animals on craigs list, I tried. I'm not in any rush on the picture, take your time.
