Hi

Hi all,

My name is Stephen DiGiacomo. I live in Conway, AR with my beautiful wife Amy and we have two boys, 20+ fish, and 2 chickens.

I've had a 20 gallon tank for the last year, and just upgraded to a 36 gallon for my birthday. It's been a lot of fun to set it up right for plants and fish, and interesting to figure out the CO2 and Oxygen/PH balances.

We have mostly beginner fish, non-aggressive, and easy plants. I'm hoping to move more into aquascaping.

Hi Stephan! Welcome to TFK!!
I'm curious about your chickens. How often do they lay and how noisy are they? I've always wanted to keep a pair but it's against my city's civil code. Are they quiet enough I could keep two in the backyard and no one would ever know?? Nothing beats freshly laid eggs.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Welcome to the forum Stephen!
Yes, there's a civil code against keeping poultry in my city.
I may just get a few anyway. If I get popped they can go to my friend who has a chicken coop in the next city over.

not allowed? its always better to ask for forgiveness than to ask permission. Just get the chicken, deal with the problems later.
