Hello, Im new here to BYC, but I have a question to anyone living in the Northwest Indiana region. I simply cannot find any information about the law on raising chickens in my town. I've have looked on every website that is applicible, tried the Portage, Indiana website, looked up zoning laws, etc. I have spoken to the neighbors, who said they have raised chickens in the past, and they have said that there is a grandfather clause in Portage. I have my heart set on having chickens for the next year for so many reasons, and I would be heartbroken if it was unlawful. I'd figure out a way to have them anyway, but I don't want to have to run into any problems. My house is very close to one neighbor, but there is a privace fence in between. How do other people who live in areas that don't allow chickens "hide them?" Im super stumped!!!! Any help is so appreciated!!! Thanks!
