Hello,
Does anyone no if your aloud to raise hens in Gloucester Township NJ. I would like to buy a small coop for 2 to 4 chickens and raise the Hens as pets and eggs. I really don't see the downside as they do more for you then our other pets dogs, cats, etc. We all have predator's that are much worse hawks, raccoons, possums', skunks. When you call the township no one seems to want to answer or really don't no how to answer.
Thanks
Bob

Welcome to BYC, Bob. Glad you decided to join our flock. I would suggest actually going down to your city hall. Someone down there should be able to tell you whether or not chickens are allowed in your area. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting some chickens.

Hi Bob, nice to meet you. Do you have any neighbors with livestock or chickens? That would indicate they are allowed. Hope you will be able to have them.
