Is there any aspect of NYS's right to farm law that will allow New York State residents to keep chickens on their property? My local municipality is the incorporated Village of Freeport. The Freeport Municipal Code allows 2 hens per household, and prohibits the following four items: chickens running at large, unreasonable noise, defecating on public property, presence of any live roosters. My property is 21,761 square feet; I would like to increase my flock to eight hens. My chickens are all female, kept in a weather-proof, sturdy and attractive coop, the coop is free-standing within a predator-proof fenced run; deep-litter method of sanitary management of all chicken poop is strictly adhered to; there are NO nuisance factors ever: no odors, flies, vermin, or noise. The coop is in my backyard and is not visible from the street, or by any of my neighbors. Living space for my hens is significantly above the generally accepted best-practices guidelines, (said guidelines for standard breeds are 4 square feet per bird inside the coop and 10 square feet of space per bird outdoors in the run. My chickens are kept to provide eggs for my family's table. I have submitted a written request, along with supporting papers, to the Village asking for a variance to allow me to keep eight hens. In case the request is denied, I'd like to know now, if the New York State Right-To-Farm Act can in any way support my appeal. Would claiming an intent to sell the eggs allow protection under the Right-To-Farm laws? Thank you.
