I decided against backyard chickens for 2009.
I need to find someone who lives in DM and has chickens to get a better idea of what compliance with the law looks like. I’m not sure how comfortale I am keeping them penned all the time, but not only is that the law, but it’s also a good idea with the owl we have prowling around here.
The real reason, though, might be that I’m not sure I’ll make it out to move them around as often as they need.
In the meantime, though – anyone reading this who knows someone in DM city limits with chickens??
