Hey,
My name is Katie, and I'm new here on BYC!
I am 18 and my mother and I are very interested in raising chickens. We have both done hours of research on them and how to care for them.
We're just getting ready to make our first step, but don't quite know how.
Any tips?

I don't really know what else to say, other than I am super excited for chickens!!
Wishing you all plenty of chicken cuddles.
-Katie

Are you allowed to have chickens where you live? Some areas have ridiculous codes restricting even just one or two.

Unfortunately no, the HOA where I currently live doesn't allow chickens. They say it's because of the noise, but my neighbors yappy little yorkie is at least 5x more annoying than a chicken. My mother and I have been looking for land (Not in a HOA preferably haha) available in Pennsylvania lately.
