Hi,
I know this was a long time ago, but I am trying to find out more information or trying to find more people who want to have hens in Burbank.

As an added benefit, this family started a new forum dedicated to chickens, and has become very popular. I would encourage you all to jump in, sign up, and learn lots about chicken management and other questions.

Havasu is right! It's a sweet little site for anyone who wants to start a hen house. City bylaws where I live don't allow it, but if I could, I would be eating real fresh eggs every chance I get.

Nothing like fresh spam and eggs

Cheers Mark!

They haven't outlawed chickens here, but by the time you allow for setback and the amount of space required for each bird, not many people qualify. My yard is 100' x 150' and I think I could have 2. Not worth the time.

I live in Mt. Prospect.
I have had chickens in my back yard since 1954--back when I was a kid.
The city just recently change an ordinance not allowing swine, chickens or any type of farm animals.
The chickens were here prior to Mt. Prospect annexing my neighborhood.

I would think that some sort of grandfather clause would kick in here, but village hall says there is no such clause in Mt. Prospect .
The coop is ornate, & clean fits in well with the rest of my yard--windmill, and the garage looks like a barn--rural America.

Not sure if the chickens are worth the litigation that may follow, but I'm going to try & keep them.

I also saw the post regarding chickens in the city.
It's on Carol Ave--no more than a mile , maybe 2 from downtown.
Goats, geese, chickens--I've seen them myself.

I got excited there for a moment, and then I realized you meant hen house - not Cathouse.

Oh well

My grandparents, when I was a kid back in the olden days, had a section of their barn just full of chickens.

Every one of the many eggs we ate there were still warm when they were cracked.
