Best chickens for Phoenix?

I'm totally new to chickens but planning a new flock. I want a dual purpose heritage breed. I've decided on the dominiques because they seem to be really good layers, best foragers, friendly, and are heat tolderant. However, even though they are "heat tolerant," I don't know if that means they can survive HERE! I know bantams do better in the heat, and the hatchery also offers bantam dominiques. I would rather get the regular size, not bantam, but not if it means loosing some during the…See More

"I grow dubia roaches they are so easy to take care of. I can forget about them for a week and they are fine. Also they breed like crazy. No disease, don't fly, climb, or leave their habitat ."

"Thank you, I just joined the group! I think I'll wait on the bees until my other endeavors are more established, but oh I want my own honey so badly!"

"If you teach your kids to be responsible around bees and watch the younger ones, you shouldn't have any issues.  In some cities, people are allowed to raised them on apartment balconies.  It's not so much about space as it is…"

"Thanks, that's a good point. We generally avoid HOA neighborhoods anyway."

Catherine, The Herb Lady replied to Michelle's discussion Clarifying Phoenix livestock rules
"Michelle make sure you do check on HOA conditions - most do NOT allow livestock of any kind, as Clementine notes.  Also the CCR's may have set back rules which would definitely apply to a property of only 10,000 feet."

Clementine replied to Michelle's discussion Clarifying Phoenix livestock rules

"Contact the council member in that area.  They will put you in touch probably with city zoning.  That way you can get a straight answer and something in writing."

Clarifying Phoenix livestock rules

I'm looking for a property in Phoenix with a 10,000+ sq ft lot so that I can have a couple goats, a beehive, and no more than 20 chickens. I've read and re-read the city code and believe this would be allowed, but I would hate to purchase a property just to find out there is some other exemption and this is not allowed. Is anyone aware of any rules prohibiting this? I don't see a maximum for livestock other than pigs, chickens, and rodents, so I could have two goats and potentially their kids…See More
