    I was so glad to see your website. Started checking into getting chickens and city acted like they are zoo animals. Saw the right to farm act and quoted it. Using that to get taxes lowered too. Did you know that agricultural property is not taxed as high; also exempt from many other forms of taxes??? No chickens yet. Building a coop first.
