    Anyone going to the Northeastern Poultry Conference? It's Jan 14th & 15th in Springfield, Mass. There will be a BYC table there, where BYCers can meet up and take a load off. Anyone willing to field questions at the table from the general masses for an hour or more is eligible for a 6 month GFM upgrade -PM Stoopid for details.

    Hope to see you there! I'll be in my newly acquired blue (and man, is it blue!) BYC hoodie. -Martha

    So far three of our four abutters have signed our letter but we're getting a bit nervous that the last one has an issue. I have to go over there and ask in person I suppose.

    Still, better than a violation. I hope it works out.

    Hi, Marblehead Resident, if Jonathan Kraft can have chickens in Brooline, why not you?/

    Having grown up outside of Boston, Marblehead et all, was the wealthy area.

    Good luck with your neighbor. If they have any concerns perhaps you can allay them quickly. I agree that having conversations like those up front is the way to go.

    Cheers!

    Our town got rid of it's ACO a few years ago as a budget cutting measure [​IMG] . I try not to annoy my neighbors as a courtesy. No one on the town level realy cares as far as I know. But, I also watch out for runamuck dogs and had to put a fence up to protect the girls.

    Martha's Vineyard, surely you have a health agent, who does quarantines on dog bites, cat bites, persons or animals biten by bats?/

    Also, it is mandated reporting to the State every year, the number of cattle and fowl in the town and mandatory barn and coop inspections.
