    Hi all,
    We had a run in with animal control yesterday due to my father in laws goat making too much noise. While I didn't know (or bother to look) to see goat laws, it's only here for another week before its sent to be butchered.

    While she was here she saw my hens and said I can't have them. I can't find any information that conclusively says chickens are illegal to keep.

    My girls have a house with 5 nesting boxes and a gated in area to be turned out in that is about 250sq ft.

    Any info appreciated!

    I think Fitchburg Is a right to farm community so you should be able to keep your chickens!
