I'm in Mauldin SC and had a small flock of hens a couple of years back. We were Greenville county when I got the chicks and were later annexed into Mauldin-the zoning official told my neighbor(who had some young roosters also)and me that the chickens had to go-that Mauldin would not allow livestock on less than one acre. And that chickens = livestock. We talked a bit through email and then when he came out, and he said at the time that attempting to change the ordinance would probably not be successful given who was on the committee. So we just gave up. And cried a little-especially my dd. But I do have another neighbor now who has two hens. They are at least a year or two old now. I just kept hoping that zoning wouldn't find them(the official told me that he walked the neighborhoods each summer and checked backyards) Tonight I was thinking chickens again(happens from time to time )so I came here and after logging in and reading the "change your local laws" thread, I decided to pop over to my local gov't website to see if anything had changed in my zoning code. I can't find the livestock/chicken info at all anymore. Well, except that cattle and goats can't roam the streets! Anyone in or near Mauldin know the facts?
