Hi there, we're relocating to Atlanta and I'm worried about finding a new home where my flock of chickens and a roo won't be a nuisance to the neighbors. Can anyone recommend some neighborhoods in or around Atlanta city where roosters are tolerated? Looking to be within 45min to the ATL airport. My eye is on Marietta or Decatur, not sure if these areas will work for us but any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

I live in Powder Springs which is 30 minutes from ATL airport. I would not recommend Marietta since it was also my first choice and a poor one at that. Lived there for one whole year and hated every minute of it. The reason for staying there that long was based on the lease contract.

 

I would also steer clear of Decatur which has worse areas than Marietta in my opinion. 

As a new comer you would not know that. 

 

Things down here are very good, but only if you know what to expect. For example, when moving here, there are a few things you should know. 

 

If your apartment price range is from 400-600 a month for 2 room - it most likely a bad area.

Spend 100$ more to get into a different tier. You will also pay application fees which range from 40-60 dollars.. good places will charge 100$ (you don't get that money back)

 

Remember the more you pay upfront is in order to avoid a bad community, which are often full of trouble makers. That is how society defines itself down here in the south.

 

I moved down here from Boston/RI/MA areas and love it down here and id have to say, up north your word is your bind. Here in the south, your word doesn't mean a thing. Most people lie and try to always take your money upfront. Make sure you get paper work. 

 

Pet fees.. Most places will charge 150 - 300$ non refundable pet fee and extra 15-20$ a month for having a pet.  (what does that do for you?) nothing!... some people omit the truth if its a small dog, they can get away with it. Yet, if the dog barks too much, the neighbors will complain and they can even have you evicted if you didn't pay the fee upfront.

 

Also, make sure you see your apartment before hand. WHY? once you sign the lease, there might be some problems like (ac not cooling) water condensation dripping from the ceilings -- gas smell around the home or inside  - sewage problems in front of your door for a few days! *(all these things happen to me within a year) Just because I didn't know what I am now telling you.

 

Pay more than 750+ a month and you will be better than I was.

 

I hope this helps.. 

 

P.S I now own my home and I can have as many chickens as i want since I'm outside of city limits. if you are in city limits you are only allowed to have certain amount of Hens and no roosters.

 

If you buy a house, buy more than 5 acres in order to have as many animals as you want. 1 acre or less is the most common trap for people who love what we do.

 

Feel free to ask, and I may aid as much a possible.. WTBYC :)

Not sure if you're looking to buy or rent - but I'd find a place over 2 acres in unincorporated Cobb (Mableton) or Paulding.  In Cobb you can pretty much do what ever you want if you have over 2 acres.  Roos, etc...

 

Both should be well under 45 minutes to the airport.

I think I have some of these chickens at the moment, but not sure if they are black stars too..?? I couldn't tell you. But there is a guy here in powder springs that sells chicks for 8-10$ per 6-10 weeks old or even less if you buy in bulk
