    I have done many Google searches to find what the EXACT laws are in Indiana, but haven't found any luck. Overall, what I have found is "within city limits" which I am not. I also have found a few things about "5 acre minimum", but no details. Where can I find this information? Any help would be great. [​IMG]

    When I check the zoning laws for my county:

    Zoned Agricultural = you can have chickens.

    Zoned Residential = you need 5 or more acres to own chickens.

    Each county has a different set of rules, but when I called the State of Indiana Board of Health, I was told that some places have limits (like 5 or 10) and no roosters.
