I am looking for information on how to get Knox County to add an ordinance regarding chickens in neighborhoods which is as strict as that of the city. Number allowed, no roosters, and needing a permit. I have been dealing with hens and roosters on the property next to mine for 4 years. There were 35 hens and 5 roosters next door to me on a less than 1 acre lot. The owner of the chickens finally got rid of them and settled out of court with us, but we had to spend an inordinate amount of money due to the legal system. I want to make sure that no one else has to deal with the smell, noise or devaluation of their property due to a neighbors poor choices. Any assistance into how this type of ordinance can be brought up and added to Knox County codes would be appreciated.
