I've been interested in homesteading / hobby farming for a little bit and stumbled onto the permies site. Anything happening in this area? The other posts are so old, I think I might have hit a dead site.

If chickens are too loud for your HOA, what about quail? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXzz5b7kVQM
I'd be completely happy with quail. Unfortunately the HOA contract thingy specifies "all varieties of fowl" as well as "all varieties of livestock and animals excluding dogs, cats, and small animal pets."
They're a pain in the butt. I honestly wish we had chosen somewhere else to live...
We did attempt to have the bylaws changed by bringing the chicken issue up for a vote: Unfortunately we didn't get the minimum 75% of households voting on the issue, so even though the "for" votes outnumbered the "against" votes we didn't have enough total votes to get it changed.
HOA board has said we now have to wait a year before we can attempt to have it brought up for a vote again.
