Please don't laugh, I don't know who else to ask. Are you allowed to keep chickens in MQ? I don't live in MQ but might be in the new year and have three chickens. DP says there are 'no livestock' rules but how can I check and who would I ask? If I sound green, it's cos I am.
Chickens aren't livestock, they're poultry - it's a really important distinction as there's all sorts of covenants about livestock in house deeds, allotments, estates which leads most people to think they can't have chickens when they can.
my friends have them in their MQ. The igloos are great, try getting second hand from ebay, as you aren't allowed to sell animals you may find somebody selling igloo, straw, food etc etc and wonder what are they doing with their chickens, if you message them you quite often find they want rid of chickens too so will throw them in for free.
