Our ordinances say no farm animals. We have a small flock and love our ladies. I would not get a roo in a neighborhood and my ladies are caged with runs we made for them. Our neighborhood association president is on board for allowing hens (and secretly has some of his own! lol!) and they only issue violations based on complaints. I would love to let my girls free range, but I'm not sure if I want to do that until the ordinances are changed. Though if we check our fence to make sure there are no escape routes, I might do it anyway. Has anyone here changed their neighborhood ordinances? It really baffles me why hens and rabbits would not be allowed. I'd love to get a few rabbits for meat and for pets, but I don't want to push it!
