We are not quite done with the coop details but the chickens have moved in! All we have left to do is paint the outside, add the nesting box, and add a vent to the roof. I am so happy with the way it turned out. My husband did an awesome job!!
We found out the hard way that our HOA and the County Zoning Commission are not on the same page!! So this is where the cock comes in. Our awesome neighbor (the cock) decided that they had a problem with chicks! They called the cops two times complaining of chick noise!? We either live next to a super hero or this person has super sonic hearing, the birds outside make more noise than our chicks! The first time the cops came out they just laughed and the second time one of the cops decided she wanted chickens after seeing ours. They decided to put a note in the system that says the next time the neighbor calls (anonymously), to ignore it! The funny thing is that it's obvious who it was that called. Since they didn't get anywhere with the cops they decided to call the County Zoning Commission.
Our HOA allows 4 chickens but the Zoning Commission considers chickens "household pets". Therefore since we had a dog, we had one too many "pets", so now we have to get rid of one chick. Lucky for us we found someone that will take one of them.
It's unfortunate that this person cannot be an adult and come over like a normal adult person and express their concerns!
