    I think there is a section in BYC about LORE (local ordinances . . . .)

    lemme see if I can find a link

    Good research, Amiga. Chapter 4.20 article III addresses farm animals in the town limits. I'd recommend that you call the zoning building department at city hall. It looks like it might be allowed, with a permit, depending on your zoning and lot size. Good luck!

    Thanks, ChicagoDucks. Sometimes I can find exactly what I am looking for, and other times I am completely lost in the ether.

    Definitely make the phone call. In doing research I have found the ordinance may say chickens are legal, but other poultry/fowl are not. May not specifically be addressed in the municipal code. Better to check ahead of time than have the problem with the city later.
