    I was lying in bed at 4 a.m. last night.

    I couldn't sleep because I couldn't breathe.

    So, I'm lying there thinking "I hate the fact that I can only have four chickens!!".

    Suddenly, it occurs to me!

    I have a rental cottage on my property, and it has its very own separate address.

    I think that would give us the right to have TWO sets of chickens!

    I could set the 10' x 7' shed up in the middle of the yard and have a run on either side - each side holding four chickens.

    That way if anyone asks, I just say "oh, those four chickens belong to that address, and these are our 4 chickens".

    THAT WAY I could have the four banty birds and the four standard birds I really want.

    You do know that SO many of us are covert chicken owners, right? We just pray that animal control doesn't come peek into our shed! It isn't visible from the gated area, so I think we are ok - unless the roo starts making a rucus. We are allowed chickens here, we just have 7 too many!
