    For those of you in unincorporated Pinellas county, the county commissiones voted to allow chickens!!!!!!!! You can have 4. My lovely elderly neighbor who has known that I have the girls left the article at my door today.

    Now my girls are legal. I had mistakenly thought I was okay a year ago as the city I live in allows chickens but I technically live in the county.

    Congratulations to everyone who worked on getting this passed! I'm a resident of northern Pinellas County and I have never raised chickens before. I have been researching chicken care on the internet and at my local library, but it would be really helpful if I could see some chickens/coops in person and talk to people who are raising chickens in the Tampa Bay area. Are there any social clubs/groups out there? Does anyone know if the cooperative extension or another organization will be holding classes? Thanks!
