    First, find out exactly what the ordinances and zoning are for your home. Also find out if there is a noise and/or nuisance ordinance, and exactly what is says.

    Post this information and we can better help you determine if you stand any chance of keeping your birds legally.

    The OP hasn't been on here for years, and the original post is from 2010. You can see when a poster was last active by clicking on their user name next to the post.

    If you want to find out laws in your area, then post in this forum with your location in the title. Also, there are state forums on BYC - in the forums section go under Social, then Where am I, where are you. You will see state thread link pinned at the very top of the list. Find your state and ask in that thread.
