    Well, we have hit hard times and have to move. We have a place to go, but we aren't allowed to have any chickens. We have found a friend that is willing to take our babies in. I think we are gonna try to keep 3 of the 51 that we have. We are buying the place from my mom, but it is zoned R4 and we have to get a special permit which is some long drawn out process and cost $300 for just an application fee. Does anyone know if there are any kind of fines for keeping chickens in Marion County Florida? Plan on keeping them just as pets. My husband is of the mindset that they can't take our pet parrot (if we had one) why should they be able to take our pet chickens! Any advice would help

    I would call animal control for that county, or city hall/court house to find the rules and regs for the area.
