I want to try to approach my town into allowing me to raise chickens. According to the zoning there are no farm animals or birds allowed unless you have 2 acres or more and are approved??? Well between my sisters house (which is my direct neighbor) and my home we have 2 acres. I am afraid to inquire since that would just tip them off, Is there a way to approach this with out putting myself at risk? How would some one even begin, should I speak with a lawyer or just not bother since it would be a lot of trouble and probably would not go over well??? Has anyone done this?
