    i live in Midwest city. Our current law for owning them is this: more than 2000 square feet limit is 12. On the agenda tonight they are purposing to change it to no less than one acre and the max would be 6 chickens.

    Does any one have any links to Dept of Ag and the standard amount of land required per chicken?!

    I will be going but I want to go with as much information on this as possible. If they change this I will will be forced to get rid of my chickens because I don’t have an acre.

    Please help!

    I’m in Midwest city Oklahoma. With our current ordinances I am allowed to have chickens but if they change it the way they want to I won’t be able to keep them.

    If you have chickens now they can't not let you if they change the law, they might prevent you from replacing them, depending on how the law is written, but they just can't force you out of it if your in it. But if you have none now and they change the law before you get set up sorry you out of luck....
