      There is no reason to prohibit reasonable small scale chicken keeping in residential property as long as deed restrictions don't prohibit it.

      These are are obviously family pets and unlike the pit bull in my neighborhood, they are no threat to anyone.

      These chickens are companion animals - pets! They pose no problem for anyone nearby as they can't crow and pose no threat of odors. There is a cow pasture over their fence for heavens sake! Cows make much more noise and smell than 3 pampered little chickens ever could. Someone with a personal grudge must be behind this complaint.

      Taking someone's pets away when they are obviously well cared for and harming no one is unthinkable to most citizens.
