Hello, I've been researching chickens for a bit now (found this site through the chickens for dummies book) and am really looking forward to the day I'll be able to get some. Here's the thing though, my husband is joining the army. (ASVAB on Tuesday!) I've been trying to find any form of information about keeping chickens on base (we would most likely be living on base - at least for the first term of his service, he plans to make a career of it) but so far really haven't found anything. I know we wouldn't stay on the same base forever - so my run and coop would be detachable from each other and small enough to move around, I also only plan on 4-5 chickens max. Does anyone know from experience about keeping chickens on base? I've found rules for dogs and such - and the recruiter told me my rabbits would be no problem, but I'm curious about the chickens. Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated!
