I think ten would be more appropriate, but I'm happy that at least we have a start. Maybe once people see that a few chickens is not the same thing as a confined poultry operation we can revisit the parameters in a couple years.

Anyone else here going to be getting chickens? We close on our house Sept 27th. in a non-HOA subdivision! We probably won't get hens right away. I want to get my gardens designed and producing before I add chickens to the mix. I plan to plant fruit trees, grape vines, some berry patches as well as raised bed veggie gardens.

Cary residents without HOAs have to check their covenants.

We have no HOA, but deed covenants rule out chickens.

Yes, that is correct. We also have no covenants. When I was looking for a house, it seemed that the covenants in most older neighborhoods were written to either totally expire after 30 years OR to be automatically renewed in increments of 10 years unless a majority in the neighborhood voted to make changes to the existing covenants.

Oh how I wish I could get chickens but they're not really in the cards right now. We're away from the house too often and I don't want to deal with finding chicken sitters lol.

OMG! That's a scary thought. It's probably as irritating as listening to dogs barking & howling all night.

Beige buckets at that!





Ma'am
Is it time for a CD Cary Chicken Sticky?
LOL! I just read the link to PL12-021. There should be a warning, since there's so much fowl language.
