I live just outside of Jackson, MI on 2.5 acres on a road where most have at least 5+ acres. My neighbors two doors down on the right have horses and the ones across the street raise cattle. Yet for some reason it is illegal to have chickens on less than 5 acres. Our neighbor to the left owns the property vacant property to our right as well, since he has to hear the roosters and sees our hens free ranging on his property, we make sure he is happy with free eggs and baked goods. And he is happy. But the neighbor a few doors down sent an 'anonymous' letter saying we need 5 acres to have chickens. Now I feel like were on the radar. And its just a matter of time before we get a real threatening letter from the township. I assume the process is long and usually fails to change the townships zoning to allow chickens? It seem absurd on 2+ acres I can't have a few chickens.
