    Our city has always allowed chickens (no roosters) and now our HOA does! So in the spring we will build/buy a coop and get come chickens! I'm really excited that after reading her for over a year and wanting chickens for a long time that it will be a reality in not too long! Thank goodness for a good HOA board who can see reason--and and HOA president who wants chickens as well doesn't hurt. [​IMG]

    Hurray for you!

    Any advice for those of us still trying to convince our HOAs? A bit of background such as when your process started and what seemed to turn it around?

    Thanks and congratulations!

    Quote:We don't have a hard core HOA at all which I'm sure helps. The board was recently turned over to the homeowners instead of people put in by the builders. The older HOA board (run by homeowners) denied my request to allow chickens. The old board is gone except for one lady. The new board president wants chickens himself. My husband submitted an action item for the board to discuss, they discussed it and approved. It was hardly a process at all once we had a reasonable board. [​IMG] I'm sure it helps that our city already allows chickens as well.

    Did they just "allow chickens" or did they ammend the covenents and allow - say - 6 chickens, no roosters, must be penned, etc ? You know, all the other extarious, nonscense that some people want.

    Editted to add: Congratulations! I'm very happy for you!! [​IMG]
