Hi--this is my first post here! I live in the city of Pittsburgh (Friendship area). I actually don't have chix yet, but I've been wanting some forever and I think the hubby is now on board! So, I'm hoping to get some this spring/summer. We only have a small lot, so I'm thinking 3 to start with, and what I'd really like is an Easter Egger, a Salmon Faverolle, and a Welsummer. I know I can drive out to Meyer Hatchery and pick them up, or maybe order them from My Pet Chicken, but I'd love to find chicks (those breeds or something similar) nearby if at all possible, or split a larger order with someone, or something.

Also, can anyone direct me to the relevant Pittsburgh city ordinance on keeping hens? I know I researched it a couple years ago and decided it was fine (not specifically allowed, but not forbidden, either), but I'd like to hear what others have found out.
Thanks! Hope to be seeing more of you all!
