The OP hasn't been on the site for over 7 years. I doubt they will see this information.Hey actually there is really good news with that and that is there is plenty of chicken farmers in Beaver County PA and almost none of them have 5 acres of land or any of these things this ordinance officer had to say. There are a few in New Brighton, Rochester and even in Center Township where you live. There has been many changes since 2011 to livestock laws and such most rule of thumb is if you have an acre of land your allowed to have 1 unit of livestock (1000 Pounds) on your property as long as all their needs are seen fit and they are well taken care of no one has a foot to stand on around you. Encourage your nieghbors to get chickens too hell let's make a giant co-op for poultry farming in general!! We All know beaver county had a huge influx of poultry farmers due to the covid panic buy up!! Let's change things even more and get more chickens!!
