New York State Six Chicken Law? - Page 3

post #21 of 36

I am from NY and it is an Agrucultural law.

You can go to Mypetchicken.com and they sell chicks in lots as small as 3.  Good luck.

Yes, I've looked under agriculture in the laws of NY and found the section on baby chicks and it doesn't mention it (see previous post with link). Is there another law about baby chicks that does?

I don't think there is any state-wide law but there are local town laws. Look at your town code.

I'm on Long Island and my town allows up to 8 hens, no roosters (this is typical), and the coop/run needs to be situated in a way that doesn't cause a nuisance (i.e. so that nobody else can see it and it's 25 ft away from all property boundaries). In practice you can do what you like so long as it doesn't annoy the neighbors.

i did some reasearch on this last year, and apparently it only applies if you are bringing the chicks somewhere to sell. If somebody comes to your place to purchase only 2 or 3 day old chicks, its fine. Though I have gone to tailgate sale and nobody was selling in lots of 6 or more for the days olds.

I have no clue. I remember last spring looking it up and found the actual law written out. 


Found it.

  offer for sale, barter or give away living  baby  chicks,  ducklings  or

Try my pet chicken. They are in CT, so it would be closer too.

under two months of age in any quantity less than six

You can buy or have as many as you want if they are over two months of age. I would guess the purpose of that is to keep someone for seeing a cute chick (ex. at Tractor Supply) or duckling and getting one not thinking of or knowing how to take care of it (like the poor goldfish at fairs). If they have to get six they will think more about it before they act.
