Chicken lawsuit: Fort Bend County HOA sues elderly woman for up to $10,000
MISSOURI CITY, Texas – The Lake Olympia Homeowner’s Association in Missouri City sued an elderly resident recently for up to $10,000 in damages after she refused to get rid of her pet chickens. The Alveys thought chickens were allowed in the backyard of their home in Lake Olympia in Missouri City when they moved in 22 years ago. That year, the Alveys told KPRC 2 that an HOA member told them they could keep hens, but no roosters, as long as the animals didn’t disturb the neighbors. After initially resisting, Don Alvey told his wife they might have to give up. “The matter is in litigation and we can’t comment,” HOA attorney Terry Sears said over the phone on Wednesday night.
