    I am out of city limits but have a Lowell adress. Live in Lake Dale. My neighbor one bay over had ducks, quail, peacocks, and pheasants. Who knows what else he had. And a lady I got to church with, her son actually has some of the other neighbors overflow. Thanks.

    If you are out of city limits then i would say it is safe anyway. No need to worry but i am checking anyway. If your neighbor has this stuff then I know it is safe. I did however see that you can not let poultry run free range there it is a class b misdemeanor.

    [​IMG] I thought it would be okay but DH wants to get a permit to put up a fence and I didn't want to find out the hard way that I have to get rid of my babies. Hubby would just have to deal w/chickens in diapers [​IMG]
    Thank you sooooooo much!!!!
