I'm new to this site. Located in Fenton - which is in Mid-Michigan, started keeping chickens when GM let me go during the bankruptcy. They've kept us in eggs (until this summer's molt) pretty steadily. My wife told me that she was okay with it, as long as I built a coop that looked like it had been here for 100 years. I used reclaimed barnwood to build it and she likes it.
The City of Fenton just approved an ordinance allowing maximum of 3 chickens, no roosters, in town. They didn't want to approve it, but enough citizen input prompted them to approve a restrictive ordinance. Understandable in the city itself, but I have an acre that is secluded from town. My 6 girls are flying under the radar for now... The city council enacted a punitive series of fines for infractions: $125 for 1st day, $250 for 2nd day, $500 for each following day.

Welcome chickadee86 from Upper Michigan. We're happy to have you join us. What kind of chickens do you have? Lots of good stuff on the threads here and great people always ready to help if you have a question. :)

mjenk - My sister just moved to Fenton early this Spring. :) Your coop you made sounds absolutely lovely!!! Let your girls out 3 at a time. Six chickens? I only see 3. Someone must have double vision. ;) There's your excuse. :D Love your avatar!!!

Energyvet, I'm not sure what you mean by "get yourself a decal and play some games"? Is this some kind of chicken secret code?

Go to the decal thread and ask for one, then PM (private message) Keith or Austin with your address. Don't post your address in public. And we play movie quotes and word association. I was just inviting you to join in. And Cogburn is just an old so-and-so. He's really no fun anyway. Lol
