I am thinking about getting some chickens and the first thing I thought was call the city and see if it is ok, the lady who answered seemed a bit confused and said I dont know and then said NO. I finally found the city ordinances and it says that I can well it says that fowl and bees have to be keep 300 feet from any dwelling, street etc. It also said that fowl can not be at large in a public place or street or premises of another without their consent. Now to me that seems like they are legal in my city. I wrote an email to the city clerk to ask for verification on what the ordinances are. Do you think she either just did not want to deal with it or that she just discourages things like that in the city. I live in Warren MI and I have never seen a neighbor have a coop or any chickens but if I can I want to have them but I do not want to go through getting them and getting attached and having the expense of a coop just for them to say that they are not allowed. Has anyone had this problem that you can shed some light on it for me.
Thanks a bunch
