    Hello,

    It has been my long-time goal to have a garden and chickens, but living in an apartment for the last 12 years has made this unrealistic. (I did manage to grow some delicious strawberries on a roof for awhile...!) This summer we will be moving to the Portland, Maine area and will hopefully finally be able to get a house with a yard!

    I'm wondering if any current Maine residents have advice on neighborhoods that are chicken friendly in Cape Elizabeth and Falmouth. I know both towns allow backyard chickens, but several of the neighborhoods we have looked in have covenants that don't allow them.

    Thanks for any advice and look forward to getting to know people,
    Iz
