Hi - My name is Michael and my wife is Kelly. My wife (I should say - we -) are big into self sustaining companies and using local producers for much of what we feed our family. This past year we had two gardens, one a 16x16 plot in our backyard and a 60x30 plot in a community garden. I just found your site while trying to find out if it is legal for us to keep several chickens in our backyard. Used only for eggs for our family.... looking forward to learning more about it.
