As part of my project to get ordinance changes for our county (and to benefit others) , would you please list here ALL cities/towns/ counties where you are allowed to have BYC in RESIDENTIAL areas in Florida. Then I will look up and print out the code.
Please and Thankyou !

Tampa Area, Florida
I believe St. Petersburg just passed (or is about to pass) an ordinance allowing hens in the city. Tampa allows them but only if you meet the property requirements (most lots are too small).

Pace, Florida
I live in Pace, Santa Rosa County. I checked about a year ago and was told by the county they don't care. However they said to look at 4 digits in my tax ID and that will tell what subdivision I live in. Then look up that subdivision to see if there are restrictions. Well my Tax ID had 0000 which means no subdivision. I think this maybe correct, a lady on the next street has a bunch of ducks. I can hear them from my house. So I think I'm OK.

I don't think you can go by Municode. Apparently, county ordinances trump those laws. I live next to the above poster in Escambia Co. Apparently, here you have to be zoned rural *and* have at least 2 acres!! Ridiculous! A lady posted on Craigslist a few weeks ago that she is rural, but was told she has to get rid of her chickens because she only owns one acre. She said she was going to try to get the law changed and was looking for supporters so I emailed her a few hours ago but haven't heard back yet.

Fernandina Beach Florida
Fernandina beach in agriculture and resendtial 1. You have to get a permit from the city manager, easy as writing an e-mail.

I was allowed up to 5, it wasn't specified if I could have a rooster.
