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. 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.
