    I live in Lafayette, Indiana and just bought a house while my husband and I get our graduate degrees. I can't wait to start my garden and if I can a chicken coop. I have been doing some research online about chickens in lafayette, but I found one source that shows you can have them with a permit and then others that say you cant have any. Anybody know anything?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You should check with your city hall regarding chicken regulations. Someone there should be able to answer your questions. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in being able to get chickens.

    Finding out first , that it's legal, will save you a lot of heartache later.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Definitely call your local city hall as they should be able to tell you all you need to know.

    Good luck and I hope you can keep a flock of chickens!!
