I want to raise chickens and a few roosters

post #1 of 5

Just for fun.  My  daughter loves them and my husband will build a pen out back for them.  Only thing, I can't get the doggone health department on the phone to find out if its legal.
Can someone tell me if it is legal to own them in the city limits of Hiram ga? Please, we want them now and have a friend willing to give us some and wanting to go get them this weekend but dont' want to get into trouble.

I am not sure if they are or are not legal in your town, but I would recommend calling city hall and asking them. It is your city that is making the city ordance laws, and they should be able to direct you, and let you know if it is illegal, if you can get a permit or an exemption, etc. For where I live that is how I found out whether or not I could have chickens, with my town it had to do with zoning, as in where I was located, and since I am right on the town line and in the country and not downtown, it is allowed.

I hope everything works out for you!  If chickens are not allowed, also try looking for loop holes, such as ducks, exotics (peafowl, guail, etc), and see if you can get something like.  I'm rooting for you!!! thumbsup

You need to check your zoning through your city or county zoning codes/ordinances, not the health department.

I found the Paulding County Animal Control Ordinances, but nothing about poultry, per se. There is a noise ordinance that says an animal can't make a sound that travels across property lines for more than 15 minutes, LOL. Guess that would have some bearing on a rooster.
