    Hi Everyone!

    My name is Julia, but you can call me Jules. I am a married mother of one awesome 9 yr old boy as well as a human servant to a dog and 2 cats.

    I don't have any chickens yet, as I was erroneously led to believe that they are not allowed in my downtown, historic neighborhood. However, on a whim today I looked up the city's municipal codes and found that they are allowed as long they do not cause a stink, figuratively and literally. WOO HOO! I'm so excited.

    My husband and I both have wanted them for a while; we are easing our way into the "urban homesteading" movement, slowly but surely. We already grow lots of herbs and veggies, but to have our own eggs would be a boon. So I am hoping to be a chicken owner very soon... Or as I say with my dog, I hope to be some chickens' human very soon. [​IMG]

    I look forward to learning more about raising chicks and to getting to know some of my fellow enthusiasts.

    Sincerely,
    Jules

    Hi JulesCinSC!!! How great is THAT!!!? You can have chickens after all!!!

    Giiven your regulations, you might want to look into human grade diatomatous earth (DE) or "Sweet PDZ" (the latter contains human grade DE) - they are GREAT for keeping the coop smelling fresh -- dries up just about anything you put it on and it isn't harmful to animals or humans!!
