    Hi guys! My husband and I cannot currently have chickens where we live, but will most likely be moving when he graduates with his Master's this spring. I want to be sure that chickens are allowed in the city that we choose. However, I find it impossible to navigate city websites so I need your help! These are the cities we're considering:

    Syracuse, NY
    Lexington, KY (I think they allow 10; is this accurate?)
    Chapel Hill, NC

    Does anyone know about the chicken laws in these places? If you happen to have a link to any of these ordinances, that would be even better. Thanks in advance, everybody!

    Theres a section in the forum titled "where am I? Where are you?" you may be able to find those areas and ask if no one comes along to answer here.

    I've found out that Chapel Hill allows 10 chickens and Lexington doesn't seem to have a limit. Does anyone have information on Syracuse or clarification for Lexington..?
