Hi!
I finally have chickens!
Through a series of unforseen events I have 8 pullet chicks. I planned to get rid of all but the three my city ord. permits but now Im in love. Can I keep them all? What happens if I am caught? Someone up the road from me has 6 too. What do you experienced chicken people think?

I know a few people in seattle who have a limit of 3 hens... but have roosters AND more than 3! As long as your neighbors don't report you and the birds stay "invisible" as in smell, I think you can get away with it. :p

No complaints no problems...if you have neighbors that are close, butter them up with a few free eggs here and there

*Maybe we oughta poll politicians on their stance on backyard chicken keeping and vote accordingly-- I suppose we could hardly do much worse. . .

Here Here, DK!! I like that idea. Besides, if we got them to arguing about chickens at least we'd have something more interesting on the evening news.

The Founding Fathers all had poultry. Who was the last president to actively partake in keeping backyard chickens?

Dont worry about rules. I think you should set it up so the coop is private. I have a fenced in yard so they are not out causing trouble in the neighbors yards. Most people wont even know about the rules anyway. If you take good care, nobody will worry about it. Enjoy your chickens!!!
