    Hi all! I am a new member here and would LOVE any help with finding out what the laws and regulations are in my area! We recently moved to the area and are ready to start building our coop! But trying to make sure we aren't going to have any issues along the way lol

    Welcome! We're glad you're here! I've been to dry ridge, several years ago (have some friends who live there).
    To find out the local regulations on chicken keeping, check with your city (you can call the city hall) and if you live in an organized neighborhood, you can also check with your homeowners association.

    Join your state thread and see if any one on there would know about your town or city restrictions (if any). Does anyone near you have chickens?
