New From PA!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm reading up on chickens. Chickens are something I've always been interested in. Trouble is I can't find ANY INFORMATION anywhere whether I'm able to keep them in Cambria County, PA. No matter where I look, and the zoning ordinances listed nothing in detail about chickens. I can't find anything.

 

I'm paying off to own my house; so unfortunately that means no moving, if it isn't allowed. Mostly I joined because I need help and can't find any info. If it's allowed, I'll likely do some more research on chickens for next year, after we officially pay our house off. .)

Welcome to BYC :frow I really hope the lack of information means is no ordinance against keeping poultry! There are some things you can do to get info here. First off, post in this section:

And ask on your state thread:

Good luck and fingers crossed!

IMO the best source would be your local City Clerk's office or local Agriculture Agent - they should be able to assist you in finding the local ordinances.

Man, I am hoping to get quail and can't find anything anywhere about the laws.

It really gets confusing.

 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy BackYard Chickens as much as we do.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Thanks guys!

And thank you for the thread links, I browsed through there a bit and posted. Looks like there are some central PA folks who've had chickens. Doesn't look like very many places DON'T let you have chickens here, so finger's still crossed. XD
