    Ty peeps, I'm hoping to raise layers and meat chickens but I still can't find if I can have them. I'm going to have to call the zoning office in the am.

    Well I contacted my township and I'm waiting to hear back from them, they said Monday. So on my way to the store yesterday, I was going down my road and low and behold I almost ran over a chicken. ( I wasn't really close to it). I almost crapped my pant and yelled holy crap, a chicken. I think it was a sign, a very good sign.

    Good luck! (Glad you didn't run over the chicken, that could have been a bad sign, lol)
