    As far as allowing backyard flocks in your township:
    There is a movement to encourage small backyard flocks around the country.
    You would have to get organized with documentation and present the idea to your town council.
    As we all know, the irresponsible owners ruin the show for everyone.
    Roosters make noise and flocks can get smelly if not cared for properly.
    You can make the case for very small backyard flocks - perhaps with no roos (sorry boys).
    Good luck keeping under cover and congrats on the newbies.
