    My name is Gina. I started raising chickens this year in the month of April. My 6 years old son and I are having so much fun. The only problem now is that I did not know I wasn't allow to raise chickens in my township.
    Today I submitted an appeal to the zoning hearing board of my township and really hope they will let me keep them.
    Here are some pics of my coop and my chickens!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Oh, your flock is adorable! But I am so sorry you are not zoned for chickens! You might want to stop by this section here on BYC, Local Chicken Laws and How To Change Them...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/37/local-chicken-laws-ordinances-and-how-to-change-them

    Here is an article from our learning center too on getting those laws changed...https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/chicken-laws-and-ordinances-and-how-to-change-them

    I have never had to do this, so I can't give you much help, other than saying I surely hope you can keep your precious babies! Your flock and coop is just adorable! :)
