This group was created in 2011 to bring together like minded people to inform others about Backyard Chickens and to change the Laws in Cobb County, Georgia concerning poultry.


The Code previously banned poultry on less than THREE acres- now citizens can own up to three hens on an acre or less with no permit or fees!
