My family and I will be moving into my Mom's house for a few years while my DW finishes nursing school. We are gonna rent out or sell our current house. The trouble is we won't have the space for chickens and local ordinances prohibit them. It's not easy letting the girls go but they will all have great new homes. We will eventually buy a large enough piece of land and start building a house on it. My wife wants horses and we NEED our chickens. And yes, we will sneak a silkie hen or two, even if they have to become house chooks.
