I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out the code for unincorparated Largo, Florida (Pinellas County). I have three hens and my one Antwerp has become quite the loud bitty lately. I've searched a bunch of sites but can't come to a conclusion about if we're legal or not. Is there some one out there that could help me out? Thanks so much!

If this is your city , then this is the ordinance in regard to chickens:

Sec. 4-4. Fowl running at large; requirements for keeping.

Chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and guinea fowl running at large within the city are hereby declared to be nuisances. No person shall be allowed to keep any such fowl within the city unless the same are securely fenced and confined to the premises of the owner. Coops and runways shall be kept clean and free from offensive odors.

(Code 1967, 5-4)

You should also see the note for Chapter 4:

*Note to Chapter 4.
*Cross reference(s)--Keeping of loud animals, birds, etc. prohibited, 13-33; protection and preservation of wildlife in parks, 14-17.
