    Thank you for posting this! I was just checking the ordinances on Thurston County (we are looking at house in Rochester) and it says chickens are PROHIBITED - can anyone confirm this for me or have anymore recent info than from 2012? It will BREAK my heart if I can't bring my chickens with me!

    You can have a rooster if you live on more than 1 acre of land. The no rooster ordinance is for people who live on less than an acre.

    Just checked on the Lacey city website and it does state that roosters are prohibited. Welcome to Lacey.

    thanks for this info, im about to move from rural olympia to lacey :( anyways... I was wondering about this, and need to take my chickens. I was surprised to find I could have a rooster. My neighbors would be very mad, so I wont, but didnt know.
