Finally! Our local town council has just voted to allow up to six chickens be kept in town, after much debate. My wife and I have talked about wanting chickens since being stationed in HI 25 years ago and enjoying the sounds of neighbors with chickens while living there. Everywhere we've lived since hasn't allowed it and my wife is averse to living outside of shouting distance from neighbors. (I'd prefer it, but marriage is all about compromise and I understand her concerns with me travelling so much for work...) We're planning to spend the Fall/Winter researching and hope to get started next Spring. It's too early to say what we'll do as far as numbers and coop size/location/design, but this site looks like it's going to be a great resource! I'm looking forward to learning from everyone's experiences, both in terms of what to do and what NOT to do. Thanks in advance to everyone!
