Check with your local county/township about their regulations.  They will be able to tell you about rules and regulations in your area.  They should also be able to give you information about starting a farm.

cool (carefully places witness protection mask on)

ahhhhhhhhh, not that I'm ADVOCATING breaking the law or anything.

But if you already have the birds? Might be good to call from NOT your own home phone and use an address...a bit down the block from you...when you ask???

Kind of like 'don't ask, don't tell'? Because if they say "nope, you're not zoned for that, you've got 5 days to get rid of those filthy cheeekuns"...what're ya gonna do?


(sssshhhh. I didn't really say this.)

One is you must be 10 acres or more.  Under 10 that you are a hobby farm.
