Greetings!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My name is Linda. I just got done watching Justin Rhodes' Permaculture Chickens video and was really excited about acquiring a small urban flock. Then I discovered through BYC that my town will not allow poultry as they are considered a nuisance animal. I live in Canonsburg, PA. At some point down the road, I may talk to my neighbors about getting a variance. No just yet though. I need to do some fencing first. One of my neighbors had ducks so I don't think it'll be a big deal. I may also just keep quail on the porch. We'll see how it goes. Thank you all for being there with helpful suggestions.

G’Day from down under LMListing :frow Welcome!

 

You may want to check out the Local Chicken Laws & Ordinance (and how to change them) forum:

http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/37/local-chicken-laws-ordinances-and-how-to-change-them

 

I am amazed that chickens are classified as a nuisance; they would be no moreso than wandering dogs and cats and or loud caged birds that are probably on the OK list.

 

I wish you luck in getting the laws changed.

 

I hope you enjoy BYC.  There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

Hi Linda, thanks for joining us!

 

Funny thing about regulations and poultry...some places that don't allow chickens will let you keep quail. There are a number of articles about quail in the Learning Center and a forum where you can ask questions about them as well.

Good luck to you!
