I hope you realize that a single bag of chicken feed costs more than a whole bucket of KFC. Also, our neighborhood restrictions don't allow pets, livestock, old people, perverts, city workers and children.

You can raise pygmy goats on Oakland Avenue in Mount Holly. They run the MH Farmer's Market.

Maybe you should move to Mount Holly.

People who raise their own chickens aren't doing it to save money. In fact, the only person I know personally that raises their own chickens is a Doctor.

As for your neighborhood restrictions, I can see the restrictions on livestock and perverts, but city workers?

That's just not fair!

Being a chicken is easy. Lie, sulk, lay low and hide.
