    Anyone out there from unincorporated Portland within the Washington County boundary? I want to get 2-3 hens for eggs/family pet, but can't seem to locate info on ordinances, etc. for this area. Pipe in if you are from around here and have chickens and know the ins and outs.

    Yes, I'm in unincorporated Washington County (Hillsboro area). As long as you're in the unincorporated area, you can have chickens. Up to three hens are legal in Portland (none are legal within Hillsboro city limits), and I don't remember ordinances for roosters, sorry. It was a pain to find even just that info! I understand.
