Hi MaybeChickens, Thanks for responding. I would really like to get a group of us interested in raising chickens to get together. My girlfriend stated that many may not want to come forward in fear of being identified and then having to get rid of what they have. I currently have 12 buff orpingtons that are 6 weeks today. I fear one neighbor of mine would complain and then I would have to get rid of them. I don't have a plan B, no one would be able to take them in that I know. I do plan to ask the other three neighbors that border my house and see if they mind. I have a german shepard that has gotten out three times in the last year and I do have a couple neighbors across the street that were upset and did call the SO. I just want to make it okay to have laying hens to help with our food expense and eating healthier. Please include me on your list if you plan to pursue attending a meeting. If there is anything I can help with please let me know, I will message you my telephone number.
