Hello everyone. Longtime chicken owner in Southeastern PA.

Currently looking to relocate from this area to a more affordable part of the state. What I'm coming up against in multiple areas are township ordinances prohibiting "farm animals" - even on sizable lots. Or if animals are permitted, the amount of hoops, regulations and and fees seem more like an attempt to thwart keeping chickens rather than encourage the practice.

Anyone know of affordable, chicken friendly communities in the state that don't cost an arm and a leg?

Thanks!

Middle Paxton Township, outside of Harrisburg. Some people are keeping both hens and roosters - not in large numbers. There may be an ordinance against the roosters but I still hear them crowing.

Thanks, Bella! Unfortunately, just took a look at real estate prices, and there's nothing under 100k, which is our max. If you know of any other areas, I'd love to know. Thank you!
