I could cry, I just found out that our area is going to be annexed by the town and therefor making it illegal to keep chickens. The property has been in my boyfriends family for decades and the street is even named after his grandfather. A few years ago they began building sub devisions all around us, so many street lights now I can't hardly see the stars at night and now this. The family has raised cows and chickens for generations. Is there anything we can do to keep our birds, maybe some laws that protect us?
