    We might move there so i send them a email asking about owning poultry. THe building inspector wrote me an email back already.

    You must have a half acre of land or more, a fence that will prevent the animals from leaving the owner's property, you must remove all feces, and you can only house 5 or less non crowing poultry and no more that 1 crowing poultry in accordance with the remainder of this sub section..


    the house we are looking at has .56 acre!!!!! so we could have 5 chickens and a rooster and if the neighbors are ok i might sneak a pair of muscovies too.

    WOW what a small world I too would like to move back to Kentucky (London County) where we have relatives and I was born. I have chickens now and would not move back if I could not have chickens in that county. So thanks you did the research for me I now know that you have to have at least 1/2 an acre. It might take me a couple of years to get back but I will get back to Kentucky!

    I live in a suburban area in California on a lot of the same size, but we can have up to ten hens, but no roosters. But here is a difference between how many 'we' can legally have and how many *I* am allowed to get. So, we're building room for six.

    Quote:there is a house for sale on 83 Jackson Church in London. Its a smaller 3bdr but it has .58 acre and that makes them legal. It also has mature trees so sneaking a few extra might be possible, esepc when they all look the same. BTW the house is only 34K. We got relatives in Corbin.
