There was a time, not too long ago, when it cost a Chico resident $1,500 for a chicken. Actually, that was for a live chicken as in a chicken you would keep in your backyard. A while back, a couple had two chickens that a neighbor complained about. When it was discovered that they didn’t have permits it was going to cost them a whopping $3,000 to keep their cluckers. They took this issue all the way to the Chico city council which held a raucous town hall meeting. Pro and anti backyard chicken groups were out in full force. Before voting on a measure to strike down the permit fees, one of the council members had to recues himself from casting a vote. Turns out they had backyard chickens without a permit. When the gavel came down, those huge permits fees were discontinued and the chickens were allowed to roam free, albeit free in a backyard. Would you like to raise chickens in your backyards?
