Secret Chickens

Hello Chicken keeping friends!
Tomorrow I am getting my first two chickens, and they kind of fell in my lap unexpectedly. I have a friend with chickens so I have a little knowledge. Building them a coop tonight from a old cabinet I have and when I know it's going to work out good I will get them a nicer one. I am pretty sure I can't have chickens however I have decided to keep the "stupid" card in my back pocket just in case. I will be looking at the clipping wings section so they don't leave. I would love any advice on rehoming these two hens and how to make them happy to be here as soon as possible?
Thanks!

Welcome to BYC!

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

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Always have a plan B when you attempt stealth chickens.  There is always someone who has to meddle and report to the authorities.  If you only have two, you might keep them as house pets of sorts.    There is a very good thread called  "people with housechickens."

I have a pretty big yard and no houses behind me. I am going to build them a tractor that looks like a garden cart with a fence area behind it. And some concealing plants in pots around that. After reading forums, I realize I can't let them free range without being outside with them in fear of the many hawks. I don't think house chickens would work for us. Plan B is play stupid, then find them a new home I guess... Or buy them off with fresh eggs. Haha!

I am in the same boat, not technically supposed to have chickens, but hoping that my HOA will use some common sense. I would not hesitate to classify my chickens as "Emotional Support" animals if it came down to it. Having to get rid of my chicks would definitely make me emotional!!!sad.png
