    I am looking to move to Eagan, Minnesota and am wondering if there is an ordinance regarding chickens.

    I copied this from the Eagan muni code... Looks like that would be a no... Although they have a huge section on pigeons and how to get a permit etc...

    Subd. 1. Definitions. As used in this section, the following definitions shall apply:
    A. Farm animals means cattle, horses, mules, sheep, goats, swine, ponies, ducks, geese, turkeys, chickens, guinea hens and honey bees.
