AFTER SAYING THIS A FEW TIMES I WILL POST IT UP HERE.  I have already contacted the city. It IS allowed. I just need permits. 


I am a country girl stuck in the city. To me teaching kids where food comes from is VERY important. I live in an area that everyone is very close together (our drive way has a 6 inch strip of grass and a metal fence between our drive way then theirs. Theirs touches the house. I have a 8 inch strip of grass between my house and driveway.) . I have been working on puting things like blueberry bushes (so far 6 planing on 12), raspberry bushes (have two want 9), Strawberries (none yet), Veggie garden up front, fence lined with corn. WELL...We are talking about geting a permit to build a chicken coop and then geting a permit to have chickens on the property! SHoule we do this we are planing on having between 6 and 10 chickens (no roosters).  LOL well atleast they make less noise than my nehbors Yappy dog. I found 4 diffrent coops I like. ALL flooring will be sand for easy cleaning (including in the run). Hoing with Rhode Island Reds who lay up to 5 eggs a week so if we went with 10 we would have 50 eggs a week. This means the kids could gather the eggs and sell the extra. 

2 of the nehbors have anoying as hell pets. A cat that had been shitting on my lawn. (sprinkilers stoped that), and a none stop yapping dog. Oh and the one with a yapping dog has a house alarm that goes off atleast once a month and will go one for an hour or more. 

IF YOU CLEAN TWICE A DAY HELL EVEN IF YOU CLEAN THE CAGE ONCE A DAY AND PUT THE WASTE IN A CLOSED CONTAINER YOU DO NOT GET THE SMELL

 FOR ME NONE OF THE COOPS WOULD BE PAINTED THEY WOULD ALL BE STAINED WOOD.


This is our house and yard (the grape vines are gone)

We will be taking the plants out of the back (weeds) and puting it behind the brick building. Again grape vines are gone. 

For information please click the ribbon. 

I have something known as Nerofibromatosis. This illness causes tumors to grow within my body. I currently have brain tumors which affects my ability to function 100% normaly. My memory is poor as is my spelling and grammar abilities. It is a part of who my youngest is and a part of who I am. It is not all of ether of us.

My husbands best friends brother has a condition known as tuberous sclerosis. He was supposed to have died at a very young age. He is now close to 30 and still alive. He has had a few brain surgeries and has had to have his shunt replaced a few times. They run a program to help people with this condition. This ribbon will take you to their website where information on TS is located.

1 mom liked this
I like 1 because of the colors. When I was a kid my dad and his wife lived in detroit they had 5 or 6 chickens, 2 rabbits, a baby duck, a dog, a snake, a lizard thing, and an aligator. That was fun lol. I think they had more than that actually.

If you want you can get him in contact with Onipa A (click the TS ribbon). Jason is always looking to make new friends. This group is great. Where does your Nephew live? If it is anywhere near MA so is this group. They have paid for families to go to boston hospital and paid for the families to stay somewhere while the patient recoverd.
