    is anyone from concord, new hampshire on here? i know some of my neighbors in the past have had chickens and ducks. one had ducks for many yrs then got chickens to mix with the ducks, then got rid of the ducks then her hens got eaten and the ones that didnt she got rid of. im just wondering if she was legal and if i got some if id be legal because i dontm really want to get into trouble but i cant find anywhere that it says not to, and its not even on the city of concord's website. we live in the rural/suburban "penacook" village and are bordering the town of boscawen nh, we are officially listed as the "penacook village of Concord" but as far as i know we go by concords laws.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    I found information regarding Concord under the Public Health Code. It appears it has been kept pretty open to interpretation. Just cannot be a public nuisance or issue with your neighbour. Check out the website under public health.

    Hello,
    I think this is the site library.municode.com/index.aspx?client and it is under 13-1-5

    It is about the keeping of the coop. No mention of chickens.

    I am not sure if this is the only thing you need but it is a start.

    Good luck
