Hello Here's our story with our town officials. We called them to ask about putting a new coop in, etc. No one answers. We call again 2 days later, someone answers, doesn't really give us clear answers, so. At the moment, we're just putting a coop about 30-40 feet away from our neighbors house. We kind of approached them and they don't seem to mind, I mean, we're not getting a rooster, so, we kind of doubted they would care much. Anyone else have this problem? If so, are you just building the coop or are you trying to get an answer? We just decided to drop it and see what happens.
