Hey guys! I'm new here. I grew up in a small town in NC and raised Bantams (silver duck wings) and had several larger breeds (Plymouth barred rock and Rhode Island reds) when I was in high school. I had a pet rooster named big red! I loved my chickens. I'm 32 years old now. Got married, moved to a urban area and have two kids. Missing my small town life a lot and wishing I could get hens in my back yard. I live in a development out of the city limits. I have a fenced in back yard. My HOA says I can't have poultry for "commercial use." Can anyone recommend the next best step to find out if it's legal for me to have hens only and a coop in my back yard? Thanks! This site is great!
