I wanted to post for anyone else who may have an issue that this is the exact email sent to me by the village after they initially told me my ducks and chickens were illegal. Hopefully it will help others in the future! Brittany, My apologies, after reading the ordinance again and speaking with the building department, I see that I misspoke. Crest Hill residents can keep chickens/ducks in the City on private property as long as they are penned and not allowed to roam freely. My apologies and please feel free to contact the Building Department if you have any questions.
