    I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Charlie. I spent 4 years in the Navy stationed in Norfolk VA. I spent many a weekend driving home with fellow sailors to their homes in Virginia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina etc.
    I remember 1 thing....Chickens, goats, cows and various animals. I remember fresh eggs.
    I want to have fresh eggs for my family. I can't wait to do this now that my Town is allowing you to keep 8 hens.
