Get ready - get set!
If you are a Pasadena resident, you will soon be able to keep up to 10 hens legally, as long as you have enough room in your backyard that your coop is at least 35 feet away from your neighbors' homes. So if you've been dreaming of a backyard farm, it might be in your future! This is a good time to start doing your research - there's a lot to know before you take the plunge and get those cute fuzzy chicks. There is a wealth of information, not to mention a huge community of experienced hen keepers, at www.backyardchickens.com. You can check out your local library, of course. You can even reach out to your CLUCKinPasadena friends through our contact form if you have specific questions.
