    my family and I are carefully considering moving to the east coast to be near family. I am struggling to find accurate information in regards to backyard chicken laws & ordinances, specifically for the area just outside of Philadelphia, Bucks or Montgomery counties. Any one have any information to share?

    Call the county you are looking into zoning or code enforcement can tell you exactly what their policies are. But, a lot depends on amount of land and zoning where you're going and different township may have different ordinance that supercede the county's guidelines. You could also go on the Pennsylvania state thread here and see if someone from that area knows.
