KENTFIELD (KPIX 5) — A Marin County family is being sued by their homeowners’ association over the chickens living in their backyard. Meanwhile the nine-year-old girl who owns them is not giving them up without a fight.
Raine Matthes has four chickens, Izzy, Collette, Phillipa and Lucy. She has been told to get rid of her birds, because they are against neighborhood rules.
“I love my chickens. They’re a Barred Rock, Polish chicken and two bantams. They just seem to really listen to you, and treat you like you really matter to them,” Matthes told KPIX 5.
But there is no room for sentiment. The Kent Woodlands Property Owners Association is taking the family to court.
