What have you done to keep your HOA from knowing you have illegal chickens? I live in a neighborhood near Houston and I know I’m not supposed to have chickens. I back up to a bayou (kind of like a small ish river that was created to help with flooding. Mine is mostly dry. Unless Harvey comes or it keeps raining like now. A couple years ago my HOA took pictures from my front yard over my fence. Got a letter saying to get rid of them l, several letters, but one day a predator got all 8. So that was that. Then last summer I decided I’d try again. None of my chickens are laying right now so they are pretty quiet. I’ve planted a long row of Buford holly bushes and other vines to cover my fencing at some point. Hopefully they will grow to be bushy enough to cover it completely. By the way, it’s illegal for anyone from the HOA to go into your property. When I called them about it they said the pic was from one of my neighbors. But 2 of my neighbors have chickens. And none of the others care. They get free eggs!!!
