    Warner Robins Georgia Chicken Ordinance
    Are Chickens Allowed in this locationNo
    Max Chickens AllowedNone
    Roosters AllowedNo
    Permit Required
    Coop Restrictions
    City/Organization Contact nameWarner Robins City Attorney (James Elliott at the time of this posting) will confirm that chickens are prohibited. Warner Robins CLUCK (can be found on Facebook) is lobbying to change the laws in Warner Robins.
    Additional Information
    Sec. 5-8. - Keeping of wild animals, livestock, or fowl.​

    It shall be unlawful for any person to raise, keep or permit to be raised or kept on premises that he owns or controls within the city any wild non-domestic animal, or any cattle, horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, goats, sheep, or fowl, unless permitted by the ordinances of the city.
    The prohibitions contained in this section shall not apply to real property owned by any governmental entity for use as a school farm.
    (Ord. No. 36-05, § 1(1-8), 6-20-05; Ord. No. 11-11, § 1, 5-2-11)

    Chapter 21 and 24 codify exemptions to ordinances dealing with erosion and irrigation. While they may appear to recognize ownership of chickens, these chapters are not intended to regulate animals. Instead it intends to exempt farmers from only irrigating at certain times. The language used is intended to be broad, and only exempts from that ordinance. It does not codify legal chicken ownership in Warner Robins, and it is the belief of the City that chickens are not allowed in Warner Robins.​
