Backyard chickens in Palo Alto?
Original post made by PA Family on Jun 27, 2008
I have for years wanted to keep a chicken or two - for eggs, as pets for the kids, etc. Obviously, no roosters. I wouldn't go as far as keeping goats, pigs or bees. Our CC&R's forbid keeping chickens.
What would be involved in asking to keep a few chickens? Do I need to get a permit? Do I need to overturn some local law? Since it's in the CC&R's, would it be enough to ask the local neighborhood association? I can't understand why a responsibly kept chicken or duck would be that much different than a dog or cat or rabbit (though rabbits may be verboten, too).
