    Does anyone know anything about the 'Right To Grow Act'?
    I dont know if its anywhere else but Ga but its suppose to let home owners have Chickens, Milk Goats, and Rabbits..

    The bill would allow homeowners to have chickens, milk goats and rabbits -- as well as sizable fruit and vegetable gardens -- so long as the goal would be to feed their families.

    Local governments wouldn’t have much room to object, unless they have complaints about things like noise or odor that they're willing to take to court. Subdivision covenants would still apply, said Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-Marietta), sponsor of the “Georgia Right to Grow” bill.​

    Wow- that is the only good news I've heard in days! I really hope that catches on nationwide... During the depression the government strongly suggested that everyone have chickens. This could be the beginning of something really good. Thanks for posting it!
