    Hi guys! I'm from plymouth also. If anyone knows of a place I can get 1 or 2 more chicks let me know. I know this us a odd request but the two I have have leg problems so I'd love to get one with spraddle leg so they won't peck each other too much.

    I always thought plymouth had no laws against raising chickens but I just found out about a rooster "nuisance law". Has anyone had to deal with this? I have an upset neighbor and I'm not sure if it is strictly enforced. My roo only started crowing this morning! And only 3 times then he stopped! Ugh she's going to be trouble. Helllppp! I don't want to get rid of my guy :(

    I think that's right down tw street form me and I have chickens! We have zero laws against them. We do have a nuisance law though. If a rooster becomes too much of a problem and they receive so many calls that it becomes a "nuisance" to fe town we would have to get rid of him.

    Thank you for your response. I am not planning on getting a rooster so that will not be a problem. I am happy to hear that I can raise the chickens. Do you have any advise on where and how to purchase chickens? Age?

    I would try to get some pullets instead of chicks. Chicks are adorable but the whole heat lamp thing in the summer is horrible! Plus you know what you're getting. I got my red stars from a man in Hanson and last I heard he had some more. I think he's on this thread. Message eggzausted a few comments up. They are very sweet :)
