I am relocating to MD for work and I am interested in getting a few hens as pets and for fresh eggs. I did some searching but there is nothing in the Cecil County ordinance that even mentions chickens -- and i believe my new property is zoned rural residential - mostly large pieces of land and small farms around. The only mention of animals is dogs. I am assuming there should be no issue keeping about 5 hens since i will be on over 2 acres and there is a 28 acre farm behind me. However I would like to hear if anyone has any specific knowlege about the area.
Also, if anyone know a good local place to get supplies, chicks, etc Id be interested - rather help out the local economy than send away for everything
