Recently the City sent out information concerning the raising of Chickens and keeping of bees within the city limits.
There are some restrictions on the numbers of chickens depending on lot size etc however the bottom line is you can keep chickens!!!
Check with the city for details!
You really need to call the City of San Leandro to ask them - and make sure the section of the city you live in is actually part of the city - some parts are county and may have different rules and regulations.
