BEST WEBSITE EVER!! HAS ALMOST EVERYTHING WE NEED TO KNOW ON IT!!!

CITY CODES HAVING TO DO WITH CHICKENS
  • I called the City of Ames and she said the City of Ames  does not prohibit the keeping of these animals, but we do have regulations providing that any animals be kept in housing that is safe, sanitary, and size appropriate for the type of animal, that they be fed, watered, given appropriate veterinary care and kept reasonably quiet and secure. She also said that we can call the Animal Control (515)-239-5530
TYPES OF CHICKENS
From the website Kaleb showed us I think the best chickens would be either the Rode Island Reds or  Araucanas/ Americanas.
They both lay a lot of eggs and from reading the reviews are very good chickens.  But I really like the Araucanas because their eggs are colorful like Easter eggs, and that is pretty cool.
  • Heavy chickens would be the best in Iowa because they will be more comfortable during the wintery months so they wont require relocating when winter does come around again
  • We shouldn't get a Rooster because they are loud and aggressive. Yes they could protect our chickens, but I read in the book Hopper gave us that there should be one rooster for every 20 chickens and we only plan on having 4-5. Also, hens will lay eggs regardless if there is a hen.
