    Doesn't sound like they can have chickens.

    They would be better off having new ordinances made rather than trying to become, "the exception" to the law.

    I lived in my now ex-boyfriends' house in a town in Massachusetts where I KNEW chickens would not be welcomed. I didn't even check zoning laws, I just knew the neighbors would throw a fit, so I didn't do it. Once we broke up, it was the perfect excuse to move to rural New Hampshire where everyone around here has geese, chickens, goats, etc.

    As much as I love chickens, not everyone agrees. Some towns have ordinances, and it's up to me whether to live in that town or not.

    I raise black-market chickens. Sometimes I talk on the cell phone, when I drive and the tint on my car is 5% too dark.

    Why do I do these things? Because girls dig bad boys. [​IMG]

    I will have everyoe know that I STAND FIRMLY AGAINST ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES regardless of whether or not they involve chickens. But remember......

    It's only illegal if you get caught [​IMG]
