Does anyone know of a subdivision in the Ft. Mill / Indian Land area that allows pet chickens? (Not talking a farm at all... just 4-6 pet chickens.) Of course the houses would have to be on a bit more land, at least around 1/2 acre. I would *really* appreciate it if anyone knows about this.

I live in Whitegrove and have neighbor with two pet ducks. I am not sure if there would be a difference with chickens.

I would keep that quiet (about your neighbor with the 2 pet ducks )...according to Whitegrove's HOA...there is to be NO animals, livestock, or poultry permitted...other than dogs, cats, and other household pets.

If I was the OP and really wanted some chickens..I would look for some of the original homes in the area (that are Not within a subdivision...and have a bit of land to boot).

In Indonesia, amongst other Asian countries, many families live with their poultry. Of course this is also a primary vector for bird flu, so I don't recommend you live with your chickens.

Well, I live in Olde Williamsburg, you are allowed to have livestock. I have chickens, ducks, and goats! There is no HOA and all of the neighbors love the animals! There is a few houses currently for sale in the neighborhood! If you have any questions let me know!

That is a nice subdivision - 2 acre lots. Very established older [what 70's 80's] neighborhood - and the new bypass will NOT be going down Willams Road [one of the things/concerns that kept us from buying there when we did]

Default ducks

Actually I am on the HOA board and they are considered pets so they are allowed. Oddly enough they are a lot less of a pain then barking dogs. I wish we had more ducks and less dogs it would certainly be more quiet. LOL- not that I am about to go out and me some ducks.

Thanks everyone!

I am very interested in Olde Williamsburg. I only know of one home for sale in that neighborhood right now, on Quailwood Dr. If anyone knows the other homes for sale please pm me w/ any info you have.

sixinthefamily -- I actually wondered about whether chickens could be considered "household pets." I don't see why not. The HOA rules in a *lot* of neighborhoods say something like: "No animals or poultry, except for household pets, shall be kept or maintained on lot." If my poultry is my household pet, can anyone make a stink about it? Does "household" imply they live in the house? Are "outdoor" cats allowed?

To the person who asked if chickens are good pets... a lot of people think they are the best! They require much less care than a dog, and they have the bonus of leaving you eggs to eat. BackYardChickens.com - Raise Chickens, Build Chicken Coops, Hatch Eggs has a lot of info if you're curious.
