ok as of Feb 2 2010 the city of snohomish has no ordinances regarding chickens.
they do not fall under livestock or pets.

sometime this year they are going to update their code. one citizen reccomended 4 hens per single family unite with no roosters.

this is a really good site search under the word "chicken"   poultry brings up no results

That explains why I was having a hard time finding anything! Thank you so much for the information! I wonder if they have them BEFORE the implement a code they could be grandfathered in? That would be nice! If not I might get whatever my mother can't keep lol

OK so I did a bunch of digging and finally decided to call the city of Snohomish about the laws, I will  paste this in the correct forum as well but since I know how difficult it is to dig up some subject I am posting it here as well since it is local information!

City of Snohomish:
Currently chickens ARE lumped in with all other livestock. You are NOT allowed chickens on any lot under 40,000sqft.

This subject is being brought up in City Council and the laws are likely to change. The City official I spoke to is going to try and keep me posted as to the changes.  It is looking as though they are going to be allowing 4-6 chickens on lots 5,000 sqft or larger as there is a lot of interest in raising chickens. I will give updates as I am given them....  smile
