HELP! Oak Creek, WI for Backyard Chickens!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My husband and I would love to be able to raise chickens in the city of Oak Creek, WI. Currently this is not allowed. Any suggestions on how to get the ball rolling to get it approved for Oak Creek? I've tried emailing my alderman and the Mayor. Please help!!

You may also want to post on your state thread, and rally other  folks around you to  the cause.

Hello Ashleynaus,

 

I too live in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and have just talked to Pete Wagner, Zoning Administer of Oak Creek just last week.  I asked him if I too could have 2 chickens on my half acre on Elm Road.

His response was also: not in my area. When I moved here 29 years ago it was all corn fields. Now they built an elementary school and subdivision behind my house. I do have a protected wetland and woods directly behind my house so my chickens would not be by neighhors except on the sides. I would be willing to put up a fence. I do understand we cannot have roosters but hens are relatively quiet in comparison.

 

I am now going to write to my fourth district alderman explaining the many reasons backyard chickens would be great. The city's concern is the predator population of foxes and coyotes seems to have grown. But I'm going to try anyway.

 

I heard that Milwaukee, with some of their homes being very close together can have chickens. Don't understand that one.

 

Will let you know of anything I find out. Glad there are others like me out there who would love fresh eggs and reduce the carbon footprint and just enjoy seeing these wonderful birds every morning.

 

Karen
