I've trying to figure out how many, if any, chickens I can have in Auburn, Wa. The city muni code itself doesn't seem to specify for livestock/fowl. Does that mean it falls under the county code? Can anyone in Auburn who has chickens share the rules? We're looking at buying a house that's on 4.77 acres, but is zone R5 (5 dwellings per acre).

Thanks from a pre-owner!

I am moving to Auburn in the next week, from San Diego, and I had my fingers crossed that I could keep my girls! We have 3 chickens. Good to know, thanks!!
