    Hi there,

    I am so excited, as Burnsville families can now have chickens. 4 to be exact. So I am jumping through the hoops and filling out papers.
    A friend is building me a chicken ark.
    I have 4 kids, 2 at home, but will have an empty nest by Sept this year as they go off to college in MI.[​IMG]
    I am orignally from Australia where i kept about 6 chickens in my yard. Was alot easier, no fees or papers to fill out-lol

    Pets are so great-I have a mini fox terrier, green cheeked conure,
    2 cockatiels, 2 corn snakes, 2 parrotlets.

    So glad for the site as i have lots of questions about keeping chickens in MN-about winter especially.[​IMG]

    Greetings from SC! And welcome to BYC!!! What was the process for you to be able to have chickens? Were they banned, did you appeal? Just wondering... there is another topic about ordinances and laws, it would be great it you could tell your story...
