I just want to say that I am wishing the best for you all around. I really hope that you get to keep your chickens either at the 4H leader's house or better yet, your parents come around and decide to get you the coop and keep it at your house. Since you are seeing a counselor maybe they will feel like they should at least support your hobby to keep you from getting too depressed. What I really hope is that they will support you for who you are. I didn't think in this day and age it was even that much of an issue anymore. My niece is married to a wonderful woman. She is happy and free to be who she is and that is all I care about. It was a non issue in my family and my extended family. I wish happiness and acceptance for you.
