    as far as I know they are considered to be livestock (at least they are here in Texas).. so check with your local department of agriculture to see what the regulations are for your area

    did you check the ordinances. One little info i could fine through the ordinance. When you find them, type in animals, that how i found it.
    Anyways it says :
    40 feet from any dwelling on the same lot
    and 85 from any neighboring dwelling.
