I am trying to pass an ordinence allowing chickens in sc. post if interested
My family all live in Columbia. I would love for my mama to have a few hens for eggs.
I know many people around Columbia that have chickens. However, I do not know if it is legal for them or not.
I live in the county and there isn't any ordinance here. A lot of people have chickens out here in the county. I claim the grandfather clause!
The only thing in our county clause is the well being of the animals. So far, so good.
I live in NE Columbia! I'll help!
What's the best way to find out about local chicken laws in SC? I'm in NE Columbia (kinda near Sandhills). I live in suburbia but I'd like to have a few egg layers if possible
I am in Lexington... Let me know if there is something I can do to help!
If you can make nice with the neighbors, then a lot of times that is all you have to make happy.
I also live in NE columbia (a few miles from sandhills). I just moved to town and would like some hens (no roosters) for egg laying. My question is: am I inside the city limits here? It seems pretty darn far from downtown Cola. but I'd hate to buy any hens then have to get rid of them.
Whoops. . .posted twice my mistake. . .oh well
Does anybody know a good source of hens in the area? I've talked to a few local online but most have flaked out on me (don't ask!).
I picked up 5 Courtinux quail the other day and may be picking up a couple of Silkie hens in a few days to help with hatching the quail eggs when the time is right. Still looking for 2-4 laying hens (maybe bantams. . .I'm not sure exactly what I need). Found a guy with young Plymouth Rock hens for $10 piece.
Any ideas or sources of hens?
PS: I've got a pretty small fenced back yard so I don't want too many chickens (hence my curiosity with bantams) and I'm planning to fence in some area under my back deck (along with some open air areas) for the chickens. . .I'll likely install a small coop under the deck to protect it from all the thunderstorms/rain)
It is now legal in Columbia S.C. http://www.columbiasc.net/depts/cit...06_Amending_Raising_Of_Livestock_and_Fowl.pdf
