not exactly that you can't have chickens in this town

According to the city code, you can:

25. Small Animal Husbandry. The keeping or raising of poultry or livestock is prohibited except on premises containing two acres or more and except within an enclosure distant at least 250 feet from any residence now existing or hereafter erected.

So if his house is on 2 acres, or he keeps them within an enclosure 250 feet from another residence, he is in.

Also the House was built in 1910, it qualifies for non-conforming use because at one time it was legal on that property to have chickens, but then was made illegal, or basically the property is grandfathered.

44. “Nonconforming use” means any building or land lawfully occupied by a use at the time of passage of the zoning ordinance codified in this chapter or amendment thereto which does not conform after the passage of such zoning ordinance or amendment thereto with the use regulation of the district in which it is situated.

Both are located in chapter 165 Zoning Ordinances of the City Code
