    I grew up in Bloomfield, just outside the capital of Hartford, and am exploring moving back there, so one of the first things I did was to check the L.O.R.E there. I tried checking the ordinances online, but couldn't use the search feature from my phone at the time. So I just called the Town Clerk's office, who transferred me to the Planning & Zoning Department. I told the voice who answered that I'm thinking of moving there, and "What, if any, ordinances are there regarding keeping chickens?"
    Simple answers: any structure they're housed in has to be 100 feet from the house, and you can have up to 20.
    Later, I'll try to go back online to get the exact section and wording of the town ordinances to add them here.
