    Hello! I'm from the Cleveland area, and while my husband and I have talked about raising chickens and general sustainability the last few years, we're about ready to commit. We're in the market to buy our first home, and to my delight, we're narrowing our search to chicken-friendly suburbs, which is kind of a pain to figure out but is nevertheless exciting stuff.

    Am looking through the Learning Center now. Thanks for any well wishes or links left in advance!

    Many years ago I had friends that lived in Wadsworth not too far from Cleveland. They had the most scenic property I have ever seen, they raised show dogs and also had chickens.
