    I'm not from Milltown but I did a quick google search and came up with this:

    http://townofmilltown.org/town_ordinances

    The page specifically devoted to animals is here:

    http://townofmilltown.org/yahoo_sit...milltown_MilltownTitle7-Animals.127194152.pdf

    There is no mention of poultry. Generally if it is not specifically outlawed, it is okay to keep them. The best thing to do would be to go around and ask your neighbors if they have any objections. If you get them and the neighbors complain, the town may find itself writing a bylaw to prohibit them but if no one around you has any concerns, you should be home free.
