I'm so sad. The neighborhood assoc. president just drove up and asked if our neighbors had chickens. I had to admit it was ME. She said she's been getting calls (NOT from people on my street, and there is no one behind us) alerting her to the fact that chickens are not allowed in the city and someone on our street has chickens! I knew I was taking a chance. The good news is, the assoc. president is fine with me having chickens. She doesn't care a bit and either do ANY of my neighbors. Our city (Fort Wayne) does allow chickens in the city if you have 5 acres. You can have up to 100 chickens per acre. Ugh! You'd think they'd let me have my 3 little hens in their cute little coop on my 1/2 acre. They just started laying too! Well, I feel like I have a long road ahead of me. I will do what I can to change what I can. I feel very intimidated though. Thank you for all the information here on this site. I just love BYC. Dang I want to move to the country.
