    This information appears to be out of date. Here is the current ordinance information. It does appear that a permit is required and a limit on the number of chickens if on property of less than 2 acres. Also "It shall be unlawful to use, operate, or maintain any coop, hutch, run-way, or enclosure for rabbits or chickens within fifty (50) feet of any dwelling house, except the dwelling house on the same premises." Also, "It shall be unlawful to keep or raise turkeys, guineas, ducks, or geese in the City." Boo.$3.0$vid=amlegal:alexandria_ky$anc=JD_90.30
