I think anyone raising chickens in a residential area is a wannabe farmer. Move to Nebraska so we can keep are value of our property..

I say let them all raise chickens!

I also think we need to specify here. Any location zoned rural residential should be able to have as many chickens as they'd like. A purely residential property obviously shouldn't be allowed to have 30 chickens, but 3 hens can't hurt anybody if they're enclosed and more than 15 feet away from neighboring homes. Three is pretty much all most chicken lovin' folks want anyway.

Besides, not that many people want them anyway. When Sacramento legalized chickens last year, the number of license applications they received didn't even come close to projections. 2 whole years of debate for what? Less than 40 people in all of Sacramento have purchased licenses since the ordinance was approved last August- and I bet most of them already had chickens to begin with.

well.. for one thing.. HENS dont crow. What is a bigger nuisense, the huge barking dog in my neighbor's yard that barks at me every time I walk out the back door, rips the boards off the fence, digs and has poop the size of a horse!, or 3 little hens that make sweet little cluck sounds, eat all of the harmful bugs and dont every leave their tiny area?
The ordinance is stupid. People can free range tom cats, and leave huge extremely loud dogs to bark all night, but can't have a chicken in a cage? What's the difference between having a parrot in a cage and a chicken in a cage?? oh. that's right, a Parrot is noisy and doesnt give eggs.

I just get annoyed with ignorant people who know nothing about the subjects of the laws they pass.
