    I want to have a few laying hens, but my neighborhood in Windham, Maine will only allow me to have ONE. I'm holding off until we can get the ordinance changed. I will be dreaming/planning the coop when/if I can get my biddies.
    I have a dog and raised bed vegetable garden.

    Hope you can get it changed! It needs to be changed, just having one bird is not good since they are social birds. Good luck and welcome! [​IMG]
