After having 'chickens on the brain' for so incredibly long, it's time...recently divorced while a brand new empty-nester...IT's MY TIME! so there... Now, I've just got to find out where to move, 1st consideration is where. Where will be determined by where Backyard Chickens are allowed within 3 states, east TN mountains, west NC mountains or SW PA. If anyone in these regions wants to sound off on your area and whether it's chicken friendly or chicken discrimination is being practiced...I'd certainly appreciate it. It may be my age, but gathering this info has been confusing for me, could be the stress as well. Today is the first holiday I've ever spent alone, I thank you so very much for your wonderful website, I have read a number of posts from the sweetest, most fun people...ever!! Yippee!
