    Is there anyone out there that wants to start a Club in Concord, NC. We would like to have our own eggs. But the City does not allow chickens.

    I would like to start a club that researches what has been done in our neighboring counties and cities where raising chickens is allowed (ie. Charlotte, Raleigh, etc). Let's talk about flock size, minimum lot size, max. number of HENS (no roosters), coop design, setbacks, etc. I would like to present a educated, founded in facts, plan to the City so they can't refuse. It was defeated the last time 4-3, the last group was close. Lets get it passed.

    Have you made any progress on this? My friends, who live in Dallas, TX, are allowed to raise hens.

    I would like to help. I live in Concord and in a small neighborhood that has a HOA that won't allow 'livestock' of any kind. I would be working on two fronts, the city and my neighbor HOA. Thanks!

    I live in Concord too! My neighborhood does not have an HOA and we have chickens. However, I'd be glad to help you in any ways that I can

    Have you had any success in starting this club? I live in Harrisburg and would be willing to help out for both towns.

    I want the restrictions on raising hens for eggs lifted. My neighbors have chickens, dogs, and other animals. From my yard I can hear three different roosters. There are numerous race cars being worked on daily in my neighborhood. I don't mind these things so they should accept my hens. Let me know if I can help. Charlotte allows 5 hens per 1/4 acre. and no building restrictions.

    Does anyone know if this proposal has been presented to the city as of late? I'm hearing of many larger cities allowing hens on different social media site pages (specific to chickens).
