    hi all, I’m new to this and it’s the weekend so I can’t call the town offices - does anyone know if backyard chickens are allowed in Halfmoon, NY? And if so, what the restrictions are? I searched the town website to no avail... thanks!

    You need a copy of the ordinances. That's the bottom line. Most cities have a link to them on the website but you can get one from the city clerk.
    Don't ask any official or you may get erroneous information based on their opinion and not the written ordinances.

    You must go here https://ecode360.com/HA2075 and look around. Search for "livestock" and also, the zoning of the tax parcel you are chiCkening up. If any officious Person objects, demand a citaytion in the Code. You may also wish to get on the County to play it Safe, and possibly Ag and Markets in Albanie.
