    Hello,

    I'm in Mission Viejo CA and was hoping to purchase two hens. I spent time taking care of a friends animals (which included chickens). Loved having the fresh eggs each morning. Thought I would get a few hens. Spent time looking into it and what was needed. Came across your site and found they are illegal in my area. Although the high has a Future Farmer of America program and livestock at the school. I find this odd. Looking for members that are working on change.

    Thanks.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! That's such ashame you are unable to keep some hens yet. I hope you are able to get the laws changed so you can get your chicken adventures started. I see you have listed in the laws section, I hope you get some answers and help in getting them changed.

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    Do post on your state thread where you may be able to get others to rally behind you. Or they can advise you how they changed laws in their towns. Good luck
