    I'm a new member, and just found out that I can't keep chickens where I'm at. Going to fight this, any help would be appreciated.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! That's such a shame you are not allowed to keep them, I hope you can get things changed. I see you have posted in the law section, hope someone can help you there. You might also like to drop by your state thread, they can be found here ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    Do post on your state thread and see if others will rally round you to get the law changed.
