Hello No flock yet, in hopefully the late stages of research. Got into gardening to teach the kids about where food comes from and well this seems to be a good progression of that lesson. Some friends have a farmette and the kids LOVE going there. I don't have enough room for that but I do have room for few birds. With one of us being allergic to dogs and one of us allergic to cats I am sure the kids will love having a few pets to spoil. I am still trying to get a handle on the local ordinance. What I found sofar was "in town" type rules which I am hoping don't apply to my zoned agricultural lot. Half a dozen chickens is certain to be a lot less distraction to the neighbors than the barking dog next door. If anyone knows the local ordinance and can guide me I would appreciate it, and if anyone close has chicks let me know. I have an email in to the town clerk about this but have heard they wanted a ban but failed so am not optimistic about cooperation.
