    Hello.

    Newbie here from GA.

    Currently living in Peachtree City. They're so mean they won't let anyone keep "fowl" on their property. Of course the geese and ducks poo all over the recreational fields near the lakes and no one does anything about that, but put a couple quiet hens in your yard and WATCH OUT.

    So, thankfully we are moving soon, hoping to move to a more poultry-friendly area. Currently, the most promising possibility is in south Fulton county, not far from Newnan and we have relatives in Sharpsburg so we go there often.

    Wherever we move, I'm sure once we get settled I will be asking lots of silly newbie questions [​IMG] and trying to get started with some chickens.

    I have five kids, which means the older ones can be a big help when they want to, and they can all EAT. They all love eggs, and will love FRESH eggs even more. Hubby likes fresh eggs, and while his job will probably keep him busy, and leave most of the day-to-day care to me, he's very positive about the possibility of having our very own chickens.[​IMG]

    I thought (thought) that Peachtree city & fulton was a chicken friendly county. Most of Georgia allows birds!

    From what I have found out about Fulton County's rules, you can have up to 75 birds provided you have the room to keep them in the minimum required housing space.

    Peachtree City however, trust me I have lived here ten years. I have an acquaintance who was forced to get rid of her birds because it's against the rules to keep chickens, ducks or other "fowl." I called around and tried to find a way to get around it, but it's just not done in Peachtree City at all. Don't get me started!

    Fayetteville and Fayette COUNTY (unicorporated) are fine with birds, but Peachtree City is a different place altogether. Which is fine if you like that sort of thing, but I'd rather have more space and less micromanaging regulation. If my grass gets yay high, don't worry I will cut it, I don't need a letter TELLING me how high it is. If I park my pickup on the front grass to unload something, don't worry I will move it I don't need a knock on the door from code enforcement TELLING me not to park there. It's my house, my yard, and while I understand the desire to not have, oh, rusted old camaros up on blocks or something, I don't DO that... Hmm. Yes I am ready to move.[​IMG]

    Hello Everyone,

    I am in Jackson, GA about 40 miles south of Atlanta. Actually I live closer to Griffin. I have lived here since 1999. We moved here from California. My husband was transferred with his job. We have 4 Buff Orpington girls. I have a dozen fertile BO eggs coming in the mail soon. I can't wait to get them.

    Hey Guys!

    I'm new to chickens, too. Sounds crazy since I was born and raised in Rabun County..... EXTREME NE GA!! Moved a whole county south to Habersham three years ago. I lived on a farm all my life, but it was mostly horses... no chickens.[​IMG] I live in a subdivision and we're not supposed to have chickens, but so far....so good. I talked my new hubby into 6 hens, one for each of our girls....(for eggs), but it turned into 18 plus 4 more yesterday. This is soooo great! I have lots of questions, so y'all watch out and please help![​IMG]
