    Good morning Peeps! =)
    I have a new flock of 9 babies (ok: they're probably teens at this point, as their feathers have been in, they're outside in the coop that hubby built, and they're starting to come when I call them -- in anticipation of leafy greens, fresh corn & dried worms)

    I'm located in a fairly large city area with a 7,000 sq. ft. lot -- but when I emailed the city to ask permission to have a chicken coop they failed to respond (no news is GOOD news, right?) =)

    Several neighbors on my VERY AMAZING street know about the birds (little girl next door LOVES to come over and visit them!) so I'm probably OK with any issues {{hoping}} and I figure that they'll have quite a lengthy argument ahead if they insist I drop my newly-found and VERY-loved new hobby!

    I have perused several of the various posts and I have quickly come to realize this is an AMAZING forum with a TON of invaluable information!!!

    thank you,

    Welcome to BYC - hopefully your local regulations allow the keeping of poultry. Neighbors can be a problem.
