We had some of them here. During the last election, we had a ballot initiative to "ban the cams". The initiative passed, so the cams have to be removed. They've already deactivated them.
As others have said, you are already WAY ahead of the majority of people! Having animals means that you have a replenishable food source. Add a garden to that, and you have the means to feed yourself and your family. Learn how to preserve the food you harvest (whether from the garden or the animals)...
I had a Muscovy years ago...one of the other Girl Scout leaders had given us a Styrofoam incubator and some eggs (both chicken and duck) to try to hatch out. We ended up with a Muscovy duck. The kids named her "Webby" (for "Webigail VanDer Quack") She imprinted on us, and would e...
Since the "girls" have started laying, I have eggs in addition to fresh veggies from the garden, as well as being able to sew and repair clothing items, make quilts, etc.
Picked up a case of pint-and-a-half canning jars. Also ferretted out who the new egg-layer is...it's one of the Barred Plymouth Rocks.

Picked up more flour, rice, lentils, etc. Also, another one of the pullets started to lay today, so now we have three egg-layers in production.
I get the majority of my fabrics from either Hancock Fabrics, or a store called SAS Fabrics. SAS is kind of a fabric warehouse type store...SERIOUSLY discounted prices, but I don't know if there are any stores outside of Arizona.
Got a run extension for the chicken coops today. Will help to prevent any more escapes. Had 2 of the little ones get out somehow early this morning. (between the coops and the wall) Finally got them coaxed out and returned to the coops.
Unfortunately, our government no longer has morals or ethics.
