Hello BYC community! I have been lurking around the site for a few weeks now and decided it was high time I join. I currently live in Toledo, OH with my fiance and her two children (9 and 8). I am contemplating raising some chickens, both as a hobby and also as a source of fun for the kids. I don't think my fiance is too thrilled about this, but hopefully time will change her mind Does anyone know where I can find some direct information relating to the legality of raising chickens within the city limits of Toledo? I am receiving conflicting information - some sources say that up to 10 hens are allowed, others are saying that you have to have an approval from the State Health Inspector first. I just dont want to get in any legal battles over a few chickens, so if anyone has any information, please let me know! Thanks for reading and I look forward to learning more about this interesting hobby!
