    'm very new to this, but I'm buying a house in Rochester NH, and Ive always wanted to get chickens, I'm an animal lover and I'm going to college for my associates in applied animal science. So, according to this, at the home I'm buying in Rochester, I'm allowed to own chickens correct? Its not just certain areas its ok, and others not, this is for all areas of Rochester?
