    Does anyone know anything about the laws regarding chicken ownership in any of these counties? Online sources are extremely frustrating to me. I've searched and searched and short of driving to the courthouse and asking to see the written ordinances, thought I'd see if by chance anyone knows. Thanks, all.

    I am also trying to find the same information about Bradley County. I have pulled up the Zoning Resolution and see nothing in there specifically about chickens. If I find anything I will post...kindly do the same. :)

    I will certainly do that. I did talk to a woman at Hobby Lobby in Cleveland who has chickens and lives there. She said as far as she knows, there is no ordinance against chickens in the county, however, we can't go on that. She may be in violation and just not know it. I'll post if I do find out something.
