Pueblo West, CO Chicken Ordinance
Are Chickens Allowed in this location Yes - officially allowed since about 2011 (prior to that, you had to be in 4H) - On Acreage lots (check pueblo county assessor's office online if you are unsure how your lot is zoned). Max Chickens Allowed 10-12 (10 in City of Pueblo - Pueblo County has no restriction on number) Roosters Allowed Roosters are "technically" no allowed. Per my contact there, they will not come check, but if there is a noise complaint from a grumpy neighbor, you will get a letter asking you to get rid of the rooster. One of the board members has chickens, and a rather impressive coop, so they don't go looking for problems. Permit Required No Coop Restrictions No. You must get a shed permit ($25 for anything under 400 sq feet, $50 and up for anything larger). Coop must be in the back yard, not next to the garage or in front of the house. City/Organization Contact name Pueblo West Metro District (719) 547-5000 (I believe her name is Sandy) Additional Information Lots around the golf course area are not permitted chickens, per the Metro District. If you are R1-R3, etc., they say no chickens. Lots zoned Agricultural (mine is A-3), usually over an acre, and often on dirt roads, can have chickens. No other anumals (other than horses, dogs, and cats), unless you can prove your child is in 4-h. We are an "Equestrian Community" that allows 1 horse per quarter acre, and is very horse friendly.
