Additional Information

No matter what part of Michigan you live in, you ARE allowed to keep chickens (or any farm animal at all, for that matter). Don't let your city tell you otherwise. State law supersedes city law. If you're asked to relocate your chickens, print out the pages from the links below and fight it. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the farmer time and time again in circumstances like this. Chances are, if you know what you're talking about, they won't hassle you anymore; just make sure you're adhering to the GAAMPS (not difficult).
