This is dumb, you can raise chickens in San Francisco
If chickens are allowed I hope the roosters are required to be in a sound proof area between 4-7 AM
Crockett: Have you considered living in a more city-fied area? Something such as East LA where instead of a rooster crowing in the morning, you can wake up to a Glock-10 or Uzi or a cheap 9mm firing? Just sayin' here, there are issues everywhere, and a fresh egg is ever so much better than the 4-6 month old eggs bought at the local stores.
Actually a great use of space. Instead of wasting resources on lawns and ornamental shrubs for viewing pleasure, why not make the most of the land.
Besides, when we fall off the fiscal cliff you will be wishing you had a couple of yard birds to throw in a pot.
Hmm...yapping little mutts and diseased cats or a couple of edible critters.
Just a little food for thought :-)
Crockett: just to let you know...roosters crow all day and night, I hear my neighbors constantly....I too think this is a dumb discussion, they also allow chickens in San Diego.
I love fresh eggs ! and, as a child, My chicken was a very good pet. I'd love to beable to have chickens where I live.
Yes on Chickens. Most city ordinances limit the # of birds (typically 5-15) and do not allow roosters. Chickens eat table scraps, bugs, etc and are fairly easy to keep. I think the limits above are reasonable to avoid fly and noise issues.
grey, I don't live in the city, I'm in the forest on a very large lot. What's your beef ? I'm not against chickens in the city, just loud birds in the AM.
@Cattle Dog, you can (do many things) in the street in San Francisco.
I thought all this chickenin' around had already been approved?
As for me, I could care less, except that chicken poop is probably not a good thing. I also wouldn't want a neighbor with a rooster, just as much I wouldn't want a yappin' dog.
Regardless where you live, Is it right to have someones dogs, cats, chickens etc etc keeping anybody up at night just because they want a pet or eggs?
Have respect for your friends and neighbors and keep control of your animals.
I am an animal lover and support all the groups up here at 1 time or another but nothing ticks me off more than to get woke up by the same dogs in the morning or middle of the night, worse is listening to a dog bark for hours on end.
"we want to move to the country,but dont want the country...we want YOU to be green,but not if it bothers me,we want to MOVE to Paradise,but want to change it....
Absolutely NO!!!!...Clearly this would encourage individual resourcefulness, independence and less control and dependency by and on the government. Why this could lead to other disturbing acts of self reliance, like changing your own oil, growing your own fruit and vegetables, and generating your own power. Why, this might even encourage some people to get off welfare or unemployment! And all because of the seemingly harmless act of raising a chicken! No sir!..FDR started the "nanny state" with the promise of a chicken in every pot. And I am certain that messiah "O" can top that with a steak on every BBQ!..Mmmmm, where do I sign up for that entitlement?
Crockett, my "beef" ( I suppose) is that I do live in the city. With Slum Lord tenant mariachi music at 7:30 in the morning, dogs barking from dawn til dawn, Jake Brakes from big rigs sliding into town, and the occasional siren. The "noise" made by a few chickens is negligible, and the ordinance as structured when it was last discussed prohibits noisy roosters.
And honestly, it's the Slum Lord mariachi music that has driven me to look elsewhere to live. (Since the Sonora PD won't enforce the nuisance noise laws.)
Many people inside the city limits are breaking the law and already have chickens anyway. Either enforce the law or change it. I say change it and allow hens if the area is kept clean. No to roosters for the same reason dogs aren't allowed to bark all day.
IT'S HAMMERTIME !!! :)
Ah, and I thought it would take until 10 comments before one of the local chronic trolls thought to try and tie the whole issue back to blame on Obama. Thanks for proving me wrong hammertime. Should have bet the under.
It will get approved.... but not without a chicken license and chicken tax.
btw- got flies? get a chicken. They eat the larva.
Mountainman and Hammer you made my day both posts ar right on point.
I have a few chickens (outside the city limits) and they have been a great thing for our family, esp for our kids who are learning responsibility by taking care of them. They provide great fertilizer for our garden and keep the mosquito population down too, as they constantly hunt & peck for them all day long in the grasses and shrubs. I care about the relationship I have with my neighbors and the two roosters I had were too noisy, all day long and even sometimes at night, so I quickly found them a nice new home at a farm. Chickens are great, but the flocks need to be kept small if you have limited space and we must be considerate of our neighbors. A rooster can really wreck your sleep & peace of mind if he's crowing too close to you.
The 'chicken in every pot' was actually from Herbert Hoover's campaign, not FDR's.
Mountainman, I couldn't have said it better myself and that suprises me LOL. My only question is , What came first the egg, the chicken or the people who came here because they liked it and then proceeded to try to change it to like where they came from????? I say a chicken in every back yard and a gun in every honest mans home........
I had a rooster named Elmer. He got run over! Traffic and chickens don't mix, the butcher's fridge is full of sad examples. Just say NO! We'll call it 'Elmer's Law.'
LOL sierrazd, Yes off topic but no one said Obama, this is local government. ;-)
