90.15(b)
"
Fowl. No person shall keep chickens or other poultry in the city. Harboring or maintaining of any such animals may be authorized by the Safety Service Director for the city by permit duly issued therefore, provided that such animals are located outside any dwelling or within 25 feet thereof.
"

What the city wont allow is roosters, because they make too much noise. Of course if you ignore the trains, cars, trucks, and motorcycles, you could also ignore all of the hypocrisy of this particular ordinance.

My understanding is that if you have the right kind of chickens, those classified as "exotic", then yes you can have them legally. They lay eggs that are pretty colors but are the same as regular eggs.
No roosters, though.
correct
