    Hi, I'm new to the group. I've been working with the city council to change our local ordinance. I was hoping some of the forum users here at Backyard Chickens might let me know if their city ordinance requires neighbor permission. Sort of an impromptu poll since this is one of the items being debated as we develop a new ordinance.

    Please comment whether your city does or does not require neighbor permission to keep chickens.

    Thank you!!

    We don't require it here in Salem, Massachusetts. But we do have our houses pretty close to one another so I did let my neighbors know and none of them objected. I have since gone around to my immediate neighbors and brought them some eggs too[​IMG]
