    Hi, I am a new chicken mama. we've had our three babies a week now and are getting one more on friday. I was able to get a conditional permit in my city for four chickens so that is what we are aiming for. If I loose my conditional permit due to neighbor complaint to the city then I will only be allowed two chickens so I have been voraciously reading the site for tips to make my chicken experience less annoying to my neighbors.

    so far we have 1 buff orpington, 1 Red Sex-Link, and one Speckled Sussex. We are planning to get a americana/easter egger on friday. so far I am not sure who's gonna be the boss of the group will have to wait and see what happens after I add number four.

    My husband is currently building our coup in the backyard and he's been very patient with all the changes I keep making as I read about more things on this website....

    we have four kids and are homeschooling them. we live in a city of about 50, 000 and live in the city with a small yard. Looking forward to the adventures ahead and good eggs. -lisa (candyNflowers)

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I hope your neighbours will not have any problems with your flock! But if they do, I found a few fresh eggs as an unexpected gift goes a long way sometimes [​IMG]

    Greeting from Kansas, Lisa, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! Looks like some great coops you have there! I am jealous. I wish you all the best in your chicken raising - hope the neighbor is reasonable.
