Before I bought baby chicks this spring, I asked our town chairman if we could have chickens here. After two weeks of looking through the books, as he said, there were no laws about having chickens at all. It is farm country where I live and the farm behind me is well over 250 acres of beautiful rolling hills. We are on 2 acres, the neighbors to our south are too, and the ones to the north are on 3.25 acres. So, anyway, the chairman said I could get some chickens...he just said like 4 or 6 or something. Well, I have 6 with a few more on the way, but he did say that I shouldn't get a rooster because the neighbors might get mad. I had 3 roos and gave 2 away. The one we have left is our little EE buddy, 10 weeks old, and I don't want to see him go. He hasn't started crowing yet, but what do you think about the amount of land I described? Do you think we're just too close, or with 2+ acres, will our roo maybe not sound so loud? Any thoughts? The same lady who took the first 2 will take him if we absolutely can't keep him, but again, there are no laws on the books, so even if a law comes into play, would we be grandfathered? (or would it be considered a nuisance?) Sorry this is so long...any thoughts? Thanks!!!
