We are allowed 6 chickens in our city which OWN so grateful for because we do live in a neighborhood.
With these uncertain times and food being limited, I'd like to try to raise that limit.
I will be attending the board meeting via video conference, but I'd love some tips from anyone who has experience with ordinances.

How many should I ask to raise the limit to?
Any special verbiage that will help persuade them?

Thank you!

Hi I live in New York city. There is no limit to the number of hens, however roosters are illegal. There is a stipulation that you have to keep the area clean and free of vermin so it doesn't bother your neighbors. Good luck.

Also 6 laying hens will give you a decent amount of eggs so even if you cant get the limit raised 6 is still a decent number.

16 chickens per acre in my county if I remember correctly, plus you have to have a certain amount of land to even be allowed to put chickens on it.
