    Anyone on here that lives in this area? I'm preparing to head to our township offices today or tomorrow to find out if we can have some chickens. I know Allentown city cannot, but I'm in Lower Macungie Township with an Allentown mailing address and have had a rooster in my yard last summer from a house down the road, so either this was an illegal escaped rooster or, I can have chickens, just wondering if anyone was on here that was from my area and knew.
