Hello from Ellicott NY!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I have never had chickens before, but am hoping to get some in the spring!  My kids are so excited!  We live about a mile outside of Falconer, NY (you can have chickens in Falconer).  I called the Town of Ellicott to find out what the regulations are for my area and found out that I am actually in an industrial zone.  Ah!  I am just outside of the agricultural zone.  Figures!  They actually weren't sure what the regulations are for my area... and I am waiting for a call back.  But it's been awhile... I know it's a long shot, but can anyone shed a light on this?  We would like to have a small flock - about 5 hens.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
