Thanks
A lot of people sale eggs and farm animals and meat without liscence sir it's the law in your area I don't recommend it but unless your selling large amounts I don't see the need to get a license specially if the cost is going to be higher then the profit

For chickens, it's  generally recommended that they have 4sq ft in a coop and 10 sq ft in a run per chicken. this is much better than any bird in a commercial setting will get, and I view it as a minimum for healthy, happy standard chickens. Bantams may want less (but they're often demanding little snots), Pheasants (while only weighing as much as some bantams) demand about 64sq ft per bird from what I've seen (everybody has a different opinion). Geese and turkeys, for instance, will want a lot more space, too, but it's because they're flat huge even more than they are demanding in temperament (though they can be really mean and dangerous when crammed in like sardines). 


I'm waiting to hear back from someone on the ordinance. May have to poke him again. And yeah, my brain was picturing something way bigger than 6x10 or something similar.

@Leahs Mom Hope you have good luck with your bees this year! Regular inspections can be very fun and will help to keep your hive at its best. We have only done Langstroth so far for a couple of reasons. One, TBH tend to produce a lot of drone comb instead of workers. Two, you are limited in space and how much honey you will get. Where we used to live in northern Indiana, this would be a problem for bees making it through long, cold winters. We spotted a neighbor with a TBH and are hoping to make friends soon. My DH really wants to build a TBH now that we are further south and give it a go.

 

@Indyshent this is just awful to hear. I about fell out of my chair reading this. My thoughts and prayers are to you and your family. May you get through this time and be stronger for it.

 

@Mother2Hens I am so sorry for your losses recently. I know you love your hens so much and your flock won't be the same.

 

@Hholly We currently have 3 pullets that are determined. They sit all together and think they are going to do something.

 

 @mpiownazoo Dinky's in Montgomery often has call ducks. There is an auction every Friday night starting at 6 pm.

 

@DancingGoatFarm Depending on where you sell your eggs, there are different rules. This doc is insightful right from IN.gov: http://www.in.gov/isdh/files/Farmers_Market_Guide_-_Animal_Products_jan_2013.pdf. Look at pages 3-4.
