    Hi everyone. I joined BCF because I used to raise chickens and now wish to raise them again. I live in a town that currently prohibits keeping and maintaining chickens and any information re changing city ordinances would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day!

    [​IMG] from the Finger Lakes of New York! Definitely check out the Local Chicken Laws and Ordinances section. It should be quite helpful!
