    Are Chickens Allowed in this locationYes
    Max Chickens Allowedn/a
    Roosters AllowedYes
    Permit RequiredNo
    Coop RestrictionsMust be enclosed
    City/Organization Contact name
    Additional InformationI know you didn\'t want it re-submitted BUT I found you were lacking information. Montgomery City Code of Ordinances Chapter 4- ANIMALS Article V- Livestock (includes chickens) Enclosure is required, they CANNOT be running free or they can be taken. Also, another thing to watch out for from the chapter is that you cannot have a vicious animal and also the section about public nuisance animals BASICALLY MEANING if your rooster crows too much and keeps someone up, or their squawking disturbs a neighbor and they call to file a complaint, you get a notice and have 7 days to remove the \"nuisance animal\". =/ Hope this helps! -ShelterGirl

    NOTE: This information was submitted by a member of our chicken forum. Please make sure to double check that this information is accurate before you proceed with raising chickens. You can read more info about checking local laws here..

    I believe this information has changed, this was found in an article from Feb 2013

    Currently under city code, chickens may be kept conditionally on properties with agricultural 1 and 2 zoning or in residential zones after a successful appeal to the Board of Adjustments.

    Laws have evidently changed in Montgomery, AL
    Maximum number of chicks depends on size of yard. I am allowed the max of six. Even though document says nothing about a permit, one is mandatory. Permit has to do with building and not actual chickens. I will have a copy next week. Cannot find it on internet.
