    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new here, and would like to get a few chickens for my backyard. I have been unsuccessful in finding out the laws in South Plainfield regarding chickens. Does anyone here know what the laws are in my town? I am reluctant to call the township, as it wouldn't surprised me if they have no idea and just told me outright that I couldn't have chickens, without bothering to check ordinances. Thanks!

    We are also looking to raise chickens in S. Plainfield. There is nothing officially on the ordinances. Only dogs, cats, and honeybees. However, we went to Nischwitz feed. They have 3 chickens on premises and told us there is an unwritten understanding that we can have 6 hens - no roosters. They are also a good source for locating breeders and stock feed.
