I live in Lower Macungie township, PA, Currently law states if you have (1) acre you are allowed (4) chickens.... Well we have almost 4.5 acres and we are being told we are only allowed (4) chickens total. So my question is how much land does a chicken really need? We are planning on going to the township building and see if we can appeal this law. An appeal will cost a minimum of $500 and I am trying to find as much information as possible to build our case. At the back of our property, there are townhouses, and the coop and chickens wouldn't be anywhere close to those houses. Our house is an 1830 stone farmhouse with one of the largest barns (90x30) in the area. The original property was a 500 acre potato farm. And we have spoken with former owners who remembered having a chicken coop that was 100 ft long, and chickens being everywhere...Maybe grandfather laws? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
