    Looking to move back to the Space Coast of Florida...Melbourne, Malabar, Cocoa or Palm Bay. Hoping to move there at the beginning of October. Does anybody know of anyone who might be renting a mobile home in the area, where I might be able to keep a few chickens?

    I spent part of my growing up years in Melbourne and Palm Bay. I have some family there still. I'll ask for you.

    One thing I do know from talking to my niece and ex-SIL (like her better than my brother, but that's neither here nor there) is that the crime in the area has gone through the roof.

    We went thru Melbourne on our way to Daytona in 2007. I couldn't believe how big its grown! Kinda sad really.

    Thanks Kat, sure is a shame to hear about the rise in crime in the area, it was so peaceful and quite when I was living there some 20 years ago.

    Thanks A.T. I have been looking on Craigslist and just NEVER thought of looking in the local paper...DUH! The internet sure had made my brain lazy. LOL

    Sorry, my neice and SIL both say they know of lots of mobile homes and houses for rent, but none that would allow chickens. Growing up in unicorporated West Melbourne some 35+ years ago, I remember seeing lots of backyard chickens.
