I am only looking to have a few little backyard hens nothing major! All the town and country regulations says up to a certain number is fine (can't remember but it's something much larger then I even have in mind). Our HOA says no to any type of livestock/poultry or basically anything like that. I was thinking about just getting the girls anyway but I already have a pryx that barks to much and everybody hates so I don't know if adding hens might be the fuel somebody needs to come after us? Has anybody gotten around HOA rules or worked to change them? If I just get them anyway can they make me get rid of them? If I didn't have the dog I don't think anybody would even bother to say anything, but I can't get rid of the dog I've had for ten years. I've only been here a year (moved in after I got married) and we are looking for other houses but really don't want to wait as I didn't get my girls last spring because of it. I have never lived in a HOA and not really even sure how to get around the "laws" but would love any help!
