    Would you have any luck with the "pet" theory? Some consider their chickens pets, rather than livestock. That would be if you were going to have 5 or less, probably.

    Have you looked into your zoning? You mentioned township, so I asume your not in town. If your zoned agriculture check into those ordinances. Sometimes they differ from zone to zone. Good Luck.

    I can bet your agriculture then. Check the zoning laws in there once you find out for sure. [​IMG]
