    Hi! I'm Christa, mother of two young, beautiful girls (3 1/2 and 9 months) and wife to a police officer. I am a stay at home mom. At this point my city in CO doesn't allow backyard chickens.

    If anyone out there knows how to approach a city council and get chickens legalized PLEASE LET ME KNOW! That's my project right now, besides gardening for the first time in my life. I found this group as I was searching ways to get backyard chickens legalized so thought I'd join now and start learning everything I can.

    We also have 3 dogs, 1 cat and some fish. We love animals and I'd love to add chickens to that list. I can't have my own eggs right now, but at least I have a source of pasture raised organic eggs to buy until I'm able to have my own!

    Looking forward to reading everyone's posts from people who already raise chickens. I figure by the time I'm allowed to have them, I'll be ready to go!

    Thanks!
    Christa

    Yes, definitely check out the threads in the ordinances section of the forums. Good luck and I hope you eventually bring chickens into your life.
