We live in Vulcan, a township of Norway in Michigan and, though I was told by a few random people who apparently worked with the township that chickens were okay to have, a man who is apparently the Township Supervisor told me that I now have to get rid of them in accordance with the Township Zoning Ordinance. I asked him how I would go about changing the Ordinance or who I would speak with in regards to trying to petition the Ordinance and he was of NO help, telling me that I'll never get it changed. I don't think that was very fair of him and now I'm stuck trying to figure out what I can do to change the Ordinance. He sent me a form which outlined the Township Zoning Regulations and it states that not even agricultural zoned areas are allowed to have what is referred to as a 'poultry farm'. Now, I went online to search for the legal definition of a poultry farm and we found something that defines it as 'Farming 500 or more chickens'. I have twelve. Does anyone know what I could do or who I should contact in regards to getting this changed so that we can keep our chickens? I'm totally lost at this point. Thanks!
