I'm thrilled to have found this website! Richmond, VA currently has an ordinance for chickens that makes it virtually impossible to house chickens in the city. Your chickens are required to be 500 feet from other residential homes and like most cities the lots in Richmond are not designed with those types of requirements particularly in the older neighborhoods. I've contacted my councilman over the issue and I seem to get the run around. If anyone has any solid advice on how to proceed, please let me know. Meanwhile, I'm going to dig in deep on this website and see what I can learn about how to change the process!!!! Chickens for Richmond!!!!
