Silly me....I just assumed it would be ok for me to have chickens but apparently I can't. I live in unincorporated Canton, GA. Cherokee county. So what do we outlaws do? Just keep our fingers crossed that no one complains and we can keep our flock? I'm going to re-home my roo to avoid noise complaints but it's so hard to find a home for a roo.....anyone want him? I'd love to try to get the law changed but I also don't want to draw attention to myself! GA passed this last year: The new code, signed into law May 1, 2009, states No county, municipality, consolidated government or other political subdivision of this state shall adopt or enforce any ordinance, rule, regulation or resolution regulating crop management or animal husbandry practices involved in the production of agricultural or farm products on any private property. I'm hoping that will help all of us GA outlaws.
