    I will be relocating to FWB soon and I am wondering if anyone might know the local codes for backyard hens? I have 4 hens.

    Thank you in advance.

    I think its 8 chickens per acre or quarter acre
    depending on if you are in city limits or not.

    No I don't. But Google will be your best friend. It can't be that strict because that's where I got my flock from!

    I'd bet my flock on it! The couple I got my hens and roo from had about 20 other birds. Numerous ducks, random breed chickens and silkies. Their form of shelter was a trampoline with netting around it.

    Navarre doooooes for sure have bears so make sure they have a very secure pen/house

    Yeah the fact no wildlife place or whoever is in charge for removing wild life in rural areas hasn't removed him and put him somewhere safe is ridiculous!
