CHICKENS IN DEKALB COUNTY - GUIDELINES & ORDINANCES
Dunwoody – Rules are up in the air. Dunwoody had an ordinance that they followed until 2010 that allowed some chickens under a permit and inspection process. Since they have incorporated as a city, some rules have changed and they have not provided an update.
Doraville –NO CHICKENS OR LIVESTOCK PERMITTED.
Ellenwood – Not incorporated as a city has a small part in DeKalb County. No chickens allowed.
Lithonia – Chickens allowed as long as they are contained. We assume that means fencing and coops? Coops must be a minimum of 250 ft. away from a house or building.
Pine Lake –Up to 30 chickens maximum if there is sufficient lot space(?). Chicken coops can be located no closer than 250 ft. from a building where people reside or work. You must provide suitable housing and a fenced run. No free range chickens and no guinea fowl are allowed.
