    Can one have backyard chickens on a military base?

    Actually, check with the housing office. The commander has a lot of other responsibilities, and is unlikely to want to meet to discuss backyard chickens. In the military you always go through channels.

    Did you ever find anything out? I am moving with army husband to a base next year and want to know what to do with my feathered family. :(

    I think it would be a base by base policy, not one thing across the board. Although I have to say that I wouldn't hold out your hopes too much unless you have only one or two.

    I figured as much. It's going to be tough for me to leave all of my animal family behind, as I assume I will.
