    Hi there, neighbor! :) We also live just outside of Gettysburg. The laws vary by township, and you should be able to find your township's ordinances on their website. Mind if I ask what township you are in? I might be able to direct you to the correct resources.

    Well for anyone else that might live in this area i did find out today that as long as you are zoned right (agricultural - which we are) and as long as your birds stay on your property you can have all the birds you want !!!! [​IMG]that made me very happy to hear !!!!

    Hi there,
    We are also in Adams County. We're looking for 17-24 week pullets. Do you have any suggestions for a for a local farm? We'd like to keep our business in the county if possible. Prefer Longhorn and RI Red.
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Try these people in Orrtanna PA. We acquired some Leghorns from them last year. They breed based on orders but at this time of year they might have some ready to go. We're from Gettysburg.
