    Finally, Chickens are legal

    I was smack in the middle of this debate and had a news crew at my house (following a city council meeting where I actually took one of my hens in a Pet carrier to prove how quiet they really are) lololol. Anyways, to clear up questions about the permit requirements for regular families keeping...

    fencing off a vegetable plot - what do you do / what will they eat?

    Is this garden FOR the chcikens only? My chickens make a MESS of all the flower beds, etc. If there is dirt in it, they are scratching in it! I personally will not plant a garden for food and allow my chickens access. We did plant cherry tomato plants, cabbage, and bell pepper plants all...

    Q on chicken feed

    Do not throw it on the ground and you wont waste it...you need a feeder, up off the ground so they cant scratch it out AND so it stays clean and dry.

    Buff Orpington Rooster

    oh my!! I can't imagine he was stressed over the hen leeaving the run though. He certainly could have followed her out to be near her. Perhaps he ate a poisonous spider or other bug?

    So upset!! Lost my first chicken to neighbor's dog!! :(

    Mommyofthree - This very unfortunate, and I would DEFINITELY call the Humane Society/Animal Control if the dog ever leaves his yard NOT on a leash.. And to "ivan3" - it's common sense to NEVER put yourself in between a dog (or other animal) that is eating - especially when the animal is eating...

    The Great Chicken Chase...

    Quote: Actually, just because planning passed a proposed ordinance to the city council does not mean it is law. The city council still has to vote on it, and and either pass or defeat the proposal. As for previous ordinances, I stand by my statement of making sure to research to verify that...

    The Great Chicken Chase...

    Thank you "thefox" and "sonoran silkies" but if you look at my last post yesterday you will see that we have since found an ordinance the VERY SPECIFICALLY allows "Chickens" in our city limits and does NOT specify lot definitions. Therefore, the definitions of chicken, livestock or any other has...

    Code Change? What can I do?

    Going through a fight in Bellevue Nebraska right now. The only difference, we HAVE ordinances that support chickens in residential areas with NO specs on lot sizes. Except our City Planning and Code Enforcement is INGNORING the very laws they wrote! We go before city council 9/27/10 to...

    The Great Chicken Chase...

    So, several Bellevue families attended the City Planning meeting, armed with several Zoning Codes that clearly support chickens in residential zones, but the planning committee IGNORED every one of them!!! The planning meetings along with city council meetings are recorded and televised, and...

    Does this look like a rooster?

    They look 100% exactly like my Reds, but my reds are referred to "Production Reds" - not sure what physical differences there are between full blood RIR and Prod reds?? I'd say hens.

    Chick neck seems double jointed??? Flips head ALL THE WAY backwards??

    We just had a Buff Orpington chick hatch early Saturday morning 7/24. One of our Plymouth Rock hens is actually the one who sat on the egg since 7/1. The chick seems healthy, happy, flittering around pecking at food when momma calls her, drinking, hiding behind momma, sleeps under her...
