Hello everyone. Longtime chicken owner in Southeastern PA.

Currently looking to relocate from this area to a more affordable part of the state. What I'm coming up against in multiple areas are township ordinances prohibiting "farm animals" - even on sizable lots. Or if animals are permitted, the amount of hoops, regulations and and fees seem more like an attempt to thwart keeping chickens rather than encourage the practice.

Anyone know of affordable, chicken friendly communities in the state that don't cost an arm and a leg?

Thanks!

Hello QuietClucker. I live in Westmoreland Co., Ligonier Twp. I dont know if the cost of living is any less than on your side of the state but we are allowed to have chickens as long as they are kept off others property and out of the road. My girls are kept confined as are my neighbors and a friends due to frequent hawk and other attacks. We are located next to a mountain so we get a wide variety. Would love to have a fellow chicken momma in our area. Good luck with your search.

Cate laid an egg! A for real honest egg that didn't shatter in my hand or break when she laid it! Not too shabby, girl! So, my 6 year old Mabel lays about every 3-4 days, 5 year old Cate every other month, maybe, 4 year old Jaebels every other day - sometimes more, 2 year old Shirley about the same, and Laverne is on maternity leave. That is keeping us in eggs but not excessively so.

Hello PA friends...
I am upgrading my coop/run combo to a bigger coop. In doing this I have to upgrade to nesting boxes, mine are currently to narrow. What do you guys think about the heavy duty plastic ones vs. the traditional wood ones?

I like the plastic ones because I can wash them out. Wood can splinter, but more importantly, hide mites.
Thank you. I am learning that about them. What do you use for cleaning these? Do they easily come apart? What about the heat, do they get hot in the summer or cold in the winter? Thank you for ypur help with this.
