Ed and Jackie Snyder are crying fowl.
The couple has had chickens at their Vienna Road home in Arcadia for 17 years, but complaints by neighbors may force them to get rid of their feathered friends. The Snyders pleaded their case before the Town Board at its meeting May 14, requesting an explanation of the notice of violation they received from Code Enforcement Officer Chuck Verkey.

The violation states they are raising the chickens for financial gain like a farm misusing the property as it is zoned.
