    Hello! I was thinking about buying a home in the Utica/Rome area in Upstate, NY but I am worried about the legality of owning chickens there. I have 4 hens and one rooster. Any insight would be much appreciated!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]
    I would also check with the local government in the area you are considering.
