    I ask if there were any ordinances on raising chickens in my area. She said, "Yes, you must have 10 acres". I groaned. She told me that she knows of people who do raise chickens on less than 10 acres, but that I would have to go through the Michigan Right to Farm Act. I told her that I live on just under an acre and ask her if she knew of anyone else on less than an acre doing this. She said she knows of a woman who lives in a subdivision and has less property than I do and raises chickens. The key is to go through Michigan Right to Farm Act. How would I go about doing this? Is there someone to contact? We would really like to be able to have some chickens. We are in the Grand Blanc Township in Michigan. Thanks I have 14 days before I have to get rid of them

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.:D

    Definitely check out the link attached above. I wish I could offer more insight but, being a Coloradoan, I am clueless. :/

    But, nevertheless, welcome to the flock!

    Definitely post on your state thread. The Michigan folks are very nice & and helpful. They would know more about the ins and outs of getting approval for a flock.
