Hi there! I joined here a long time ago hoping to have backyard chickens, and it didn't pan out with my city's ordinances and our lot size. Now we've moved, but the HOA has rules against livestock specifically including chickens. Eventually the goal is to move somewhere else with a larger lot and less stringent rules, but it'll be a while so I'm trying to get creative while we're here. On a careful reading of our HOA rules, there's no mention of rabbits. We can only have up to four dogs and cats with a maximum of two being dogs, but no limit on rabbits. Rabbits aren't listed as a livestock animal, either. I'm thinking maybe we could get away with having an angora rabbit or two for fiber production and a pair of meat rabbits to breed for personal use. We'd want to be circumspect about processing, but technically I don't see anything that says we can't. There's a rule that says we can't have a "breeding operation," but I'd argue that personal use doesn't constitute an "operation." At the very least, I think the rules are murky enough that we could get away with it, especially given the low chances of any neighbors figuring it out and caring enough to complain. Our neighborhood is very ethnically diverse, which I think works in my favor as it means there's a wider view of meat animals. And in the worst-case scenario, the HOA finds out and tells us we can't have meat rabbits, so we eat the breeding pair and just keep angoras as pets who happen to shed a lot and/or require regular haircuts. Of course we'd go for an attractively concealed hutch arrangement, and be sure to keep things clean and tidy. Our neighborhood is not a high-class golf-course type place -- just your average hard-working folks. The HOA mostly operates based on complaints, and even then they don't really care about most violations. Technically no one is allowed to park on the street overnight. Realistically, I can count 50+ cars that are regularly parked in the street overnight on my morning walk. I doubt my neighbors would care if I had a few hens (actually, I know of a neighbor who did have some with no problems), but since it's explicitly against the rules I don't want to go that route. Rabbits seem like a reasonable alternative. I've been trying to find a good resource on doing this sort of thing in the suburbs and couldn't find it. I figured if such a thing exists surely the BackYard Chickens folks would be able to point me toward it. Any suggestions for me? Thanks!
