    Is it legal to own chickens, my lot is around 10,000, and BYC says 24 chickens are allowed, but I think that's on a lot over 20,000. So am I an outlaw?
    The Brentwood ordinance on chickens is unclear.
    Thanks!

    I couldnt find Brentwood on the www.municode.com so your best bet would be to check your local zoning ordinances

    I figured it out, a fellow BYC member told me.
    Apparently our mayor hates chickens and they have been banned from the city unless you live on a 20,000 sqft lot. [​IMG]

    To all current and future chicken owners in Brentwood Northern California - we are starting our legal movement again! Elections are coming up in November and there are three open Brentwood seats (mayor and 2 council). Get informed and vote! Once there is a new city government, we plan bringing chicken ownership to the table again in January 2013! We have to speak louder than the opposition this time!
