After submitting the necessary paperwork, I received a permit from the City of Orlando (well not quite yet, I still had to submit the $50 fee and then I was official).
I must say, the Chief City Planner I worked with was great. He made the process as easy as possible and offered help along the way.
Okay, I completed the backyard chicken class. Class was taught by Dennis Mudge of UF/IFAS Extension Orange County (University of Florida/Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences). The class provided a wealth of useful and practical information on raising chickens and we received a binder full of written information on everything we covered in class plus more.
I also realized what a great resource the county extension can be. Attached is the link to the orange county extension.
