Also, if the town/borough allows them, can a HOA ban them? I really want to avoid HOAS at all costs but we are going to be renting so they might be harder to avoid...
Hello...glad to have ya!! Not to sure about regulations, sorry.

Tell me all you know about feeding herbs to livestock ( all livestock )...
I did once have a relative who insisted on finishing hogs with brandy, and I must say his pork was very good. So maybe these odd ways do help.
disclaimer..not responsible for any "side effects" that may occur with feeding herbs to animals..that being said..I give my birds what I grow, w/out chemicals..lavender, oregano, thyme, basil, spearmint...cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg...nothing has had ill-effects on any bird.
I don't believe they actually eat the lavender though....but they are fine with it in their coops...I haven't been doing this for years as you know *Wing..so, I am sure someone else may have more to add...
