How ridiculous. They all knew of the danger of living in a slide-prone area. What's next, people suing because of an earthquake in LA? People suing because Mt Rainier erupts? People in Minneapolis suing because of a blizzard? People in Tulsa suing over a tornado? People in Miami suing over a hurricane?

Morons!

The government does have some involvement in these type of situations, If I want to build a 6 chicken coop in my back yard for fresh eggs they will say oh no you don't you are not zoned for that and take me to court but if a developer wants to build a subdivision in a flood zone they say we have to let them or they might sue us. Of course it would be more accurate to say we have to let them they gave us money for our campaign.

The other involvement the government has is people will build a house in a zone using a federally backed loan and when the disaster happens the gov't pays the bank when the house is gone. If banks had to shoulder the loss of homes in places like this they either would not make the loan in the first place or insurance would have to cover it and be so expensive nobody would choose to build.

That's why I made sure I bought property outside city limits and outside any zoned community. I built my 6 hen coop and now I'm getting 2-3 dozen fresh eggs a week.

I never understood why chickens are banned in many towns, but any moron can have dogs barking 24/7 and crapping all over the neighborhood.

City people are idiots.

If you are getting 2 or three dozen out of 6 maybe I only need four then, that makes it even worse. I am outside the city but what everyone including my county is doing is adopting uniform residential codes so they don't have to write their own, they are supposed to adopt the code then tweak it with their own exceptions but that does not usually happen so what you are left with is it is ok to have chickens but there is a law against it we can enforce if we change our minds. I see people with chickens in the front yard and nobody does anything about it but it is still illegal. All it takes is one neighbor who does not like your topix post and you are done with chickens.

Egg production really depends on the breed and even the individual hen, as well as the length of the day. Most hens average 3-4 eggs per week, but I'm getting 5-6 eggs per day- nearly an egg per day per hen.

As for zoning laws, I'd rather hear a rooster crowing than a dog barking any day, but that's just me. I got rid of my roosters mostly because they were pestering the hens constantly, and I don't need the eggs fertilized anyways. I do miss their antics though.
