My DH got a new job in one of the Chicago subs and we will be moving when we sell our househere in IA. Every house that I have looked at and called on for city ordinances all have no chickens allowed. It is the burbs as far as you can see there. I just hatched my first egg ( a cochin, one of my favorite chickens) about 7 weeks ago and have 4, 8 week old chicks and 7, one year old hens. I will have to get rid of them all. I am crying as I write this and my kids are crushed too!!! I LOVE MY CHICKS!!!! This just sucks so bad. I have 3 more houses to call on on Tuesday to see if the counties allow chickens, we are trying to find something about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs drive for my DH to commute so we can keep my babies. But as of right now it all looks pretty hopeless. I will try to keep my chin up and hope for the best, as everthing happens for a reason!! Right??!! Right!!
