You have to be careful just because the neighbors do it doesn't make it right. Check with your HOA to get the okay. I would also get it in writing if they say it is okay unless it specifically says you can in your HOA rules. If not you could find yourself on the wrong end of a lawsuit. The courts in Texas usually will side with an HOA, so you need to be careful. I served as President of my HOA for three years, so I have a little experience with it.

Actually, it was years ago and it was a thankless and very time consuming unpaid job because of people like you.
We hired a company to do the inspections and deed restriction enforcement. I worked many hours a week on it and would not do it again. Rather than calling your HOA board members Nazi's why don't you help them by following the rules. Doing so keeps you home's value up (that's why you have HOA rules).
It's obvious that HOA will not allow it. My neighbors across the street got lucky, and have great neighbors who don't mind their chickens.
The first week we got our mini horse.. We had a neighbor call on us just complaining that we have a horse. So we got a letter.
The neighbors called a second time since they saw that we didn't get rid of the horse.. So animal control came out, and we showed them the papers and they told us that we can keep the horse. Animal control also called the people who complained, and told them there is nothing they can do about it.
So a week later they called animal control again and lied and said they got horse poop on their hands, and said the barn wasn't well ventilated. So animal control finally decided to take a look at the horse and backyard. I asked them to the first time they came out. They said everything looked great. They noticed our horse poops in one spot, nowhere near the fence, and that I keep the yard very clean.. And that the barn was well ventilated bc it has a huge opening on the front and openings on the sides. So that gave us the hint that it's one of the neighbors behind us, bc over the fence they can't see the front of the barn or the sides.
We haven't had any more calls. I guess they ran out of lies. If you have nosey neighbors.. Make sure they are OK with the chickens.
There are a couple of areas along Mills Branch that do not fall under the Kingwood umbrella. Acorn, Long Leaf, and Dunham Rd. come to mind.
Those areas are legal home to many animals. All streets are public domain. People can exercise their animals on any street without penalty.?
The HOA controls common areas and have the right to enforce their rules. If they take you to court and you lose (which happens the greatest majority of times) then you also have to pay their court costs. When you bought your house you signed that you would abide by the HOA rules.
Can we get back on the subject of therapy chickens and cockroaches?
My therapy cockroaches present no problem to the HOA because IT SAYS RIGHT HERE IN MY CONTRACT they're allowed. I'll show you all a pic to prove I'm not lying.
Also, as someone pointed out, all therapy animals, whether mammal, insect, reptilian, or what have you, must be certified. My cockroaches are certified with the state of TX to comfort people who are being viciously hounded by mean mods on the internets.
These "comfort roaches", as they're called, really do the trick.
No it was bc I was sharing Bible scriptures, which a few people loved, and I made a few friends over there, and we shared our experiences with God. I even got a PM from a nice person telling me they can't believe I would get kicked off of KDC over posting Bible verses. Oh well that is how the world treats Christians.
He's a therapy horse and we want to do pony parties with him as well. That is not a crime. No need for further explanation. It's not hard to understand. Everyone says what a cute and great idea it is. Doesn't matter what a few nuts on this website think. You can try to judge me all you want over such a petty thing. It's sad how hateful people are. And honestly it's really nobody's business why he is registered as a therapy horse. We also volunteer at a place off of Greens Road. They have 10 horses and it's therapy for disabled children/adults. Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Down Syndrome, Epilepsy etc. I'm sure someone on here will turn that into something wrong too. Just a bunch of nosey bored people trying to make someone look bad. That's all this is. I hope you all don't treat people in real life this way. It's awful.
