New to the chicken world

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm new to the chicken world but anyway we plan on getting 4 chicks tomorrow but I was doing some research and didn't even know that I need to get a permit with my town (Framingham MA) I printed it out but I'm not understanding the part that says I need a certified letter to give to my abutting neighbors. Does that mean I make a letter up print it and bring to them? Anyone from Framingham that can help me?
Thanks so much!

Not from Farmingham but when I had to do the same thing it meant me knocking on the neighbours door with a letter and having a chat as well as giving them a letter. It should say what you are going to do in terms of how many chickens, position of coop and other factors. I suggest maybe inviting them round because mine certainly did have questions. Maybe avoid cockerels if neighbours are overly concerned about noise? Hope this is helpful to you...

I think they are wanting replies from your neighbors that they don't mind if you have chickens.

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
