My daughter would love to do a 4H poultry project with a few silkie hens from our family farm in Indiana. However, we live in Montgomery County, OH where chickens are not permitted. We have a spacious yard, and could easily have a small coop. I was told 4H projects usually supersede city ordinances, but wanted to check and see if this is correct before I encourage her.
