Hi all, We are newbies and just learning about raising chickens. We will be relocating to work in Chicago in the fall and are considering buying at least 5 acres in SE WI (mainly in the Racine and Kenosha countys) or renting in either Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Deerfield, Northbrook areas in Lake and Cook countys IL. Could you please help us find online the laws for chickens in these areas? I would really appreciate it!! Being a foreigner I do not understand local governments here!! This is a wonderful site!! I have ideas on a chicken coop and which chickens to buy for our children!! Thank you.
