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.

I know its been 2 yrs since your question. But did u get it resolved cuz my wife and i had chicken for a yr and a 1/2. I was told by gbtwp pay $4000 amd that doesnt mean i could keep them. So we got rid of mu kids pet chickens. I want to try to get some more without trouble from the twp.
