hello chicken buddies,
I was wondering if anybody has any info on this area. I have a job opportunity and was wondering what you guys think?
Is it chicken friendly?
Slidell, LA info
Hi, I'm about 60 miles from Slidell. It's a nice, fast-growing suburb. It's close enough to New Orleans to go spend the day in the museums and shops and be home for bed. Many people live in Slidell and commute to New Orleans every day. As far as it being chicken friendly, it will depend on where you live. If you are in a neighborhood with restrictions, chances are you will encounter some problems. If you have an acre or so, I'd say it probably won't be an issue. Most of us southerners grew up having family who lived in the "country" and won't mind a bit. I noticed this post is old...have you taken the job?
oh thank you for replying... I thought no one was ever going to say hi.... I have taken the job I intend on moving at the end of May after I graduate with my M.S.
I had some questions. What is the weather like? How are the people? What is the growing season?
and anything else you can divulge.
Hi there! I live about 35 miles from Slidell...maybe I could answer a few questions for ya. Friendly people (daughter's DH is from there!), weather is mostly HOT and HUMID in summer, mild winter. I already have several things up and growing in the garden, about ready to plant veggies too. (Long growing season!) And lots of good eatin'! Crawfish season just started--YUMMY! I know there are several fancy subdivisions in Slidell where they will not allow chickens, but I am sure there are places to be found that will allow them. Although, rents and house prices are a lot higher than they used to be before Katrina.
