Magistrate Paul Gifford said in his ruling Tuesday that he personally owned chickens until he was a teen, but current regulations state that owning chickens inside the city limits is a code violation, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday.
Gifford gave the Kohn family until Aug. 17 to find a new home for the fowl.
However, Steve Kohn said he is willing to take the case to the Supreme Court if necessary.
"The notion that people find it odd that I like to keep chickens as pets should be nobody's business," Kohn said. "You might as well be regulating what type of food I eat, what type of clothes I wear and what I do inside my home."
