Can anyone help me? I am new to BYC and I am in search of any Laws and/or Ordinances for Denham Springs, Louisiana. I've never raised chickens before and I'm planning on getting some but, I wanted to make sure its ok in my area. I've emailed our city council but have yet to get a reply from them. I am planning on getting 15 chickens total. 5 RIR's, 5 EE's & 5 Cream Legbars. All hens-No roosters. I live in a subdivision with 1.2 acre lots. There is no home owners association and we are outside the city limits. There are no specified subdivision/neighborhood rules on my house/land deed. My chickens will be penned and/or cooped 24/7. Not allowed to free range. Are there any licenses or permits I would need to obtain beforehand? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
