    I was checking how many chickens I can keep and this is what I found


    Q: Can I keep chickens at my house?
    A: Yes. No more than twelve (12) fowl or poultry, may be kept in an area of one-half acre or less. They must be kept in sanitary conditions and adhere to the noise ordinance pertaining to nuisance animals such as barking dogs. Chickens must be confined to property at all times.

    does that mean that I can only keep 12!?!?!?! I need to go to the flea-market and sell them cause I have like 40 [​IMG]

    Sounds like if you live on 1/2 acre of land or less, then 12 is your limit.

    Make sure what you're reading applies to the zoning district where your property is located.
