hello.
i had inquired about the laws in ct.
and i was told via message on my cell phone that i can have chickens just as long as they are enlcosed, fenced in etc. and that they are so many feet from my neighbors dwelling. does that mean the chicken coop too? confused becuase a neighbor made a nasty comment re: my coop "said it looked like hello"
i posted this on "coops and building decision board earlier" just wondering if anyone here is from connecticut!!!!
thanks. you can look at my coop and give me your opioinion if you want to at byc under my name. thanks

I believe the laws in CT vary from town to town-non-commercial chickens not regulated at the state level. I'd suggest you investigate the zoning and planning regulations in the your town. I'm in Suffield and our regs are available on the town website.

Hi Andrea, I was in E. Granby, CT and there's a couple of regs up here about keeping chickens in residential neighborhoods.
I believe the limit is 15 chickens, including roosters. However, noisy roosters don't help if you've got cranky neighbors, so unless you want to have fertile eggs, the roosters can go into the crockpot. Or, if these are pets, find a farmer who would take them.
Of course, keeping the coop and run clean to keep down the odor helps. You might try DE (diatomaceous earth) for that and keeping down parasites.
I looked at your BYC page, and the coop looks OK, I hope you've done more work on the run though. That wouldn't keep anything in or out the way it's pictured.

We live in Middletown, CT. Our town allows chickens - no limit on how many, but there are strict guidelines on coop and run placement and manure disposal during the summer. Our town also does not specifically spell out no roosters, but if neighbors complain of the noise, the town will ask you to get rid of the rooster.

Hi, I live in Bristol, ct. there is a regulation of 12 birds, but if you have noisy roosters you get the three strikes they are out rule.. I recently got 12 chicks, they are 6 weeks now, getting ready to go outside but I do have 3 roosters I need to get rid of. Any ideas? I cant personally (put them in the pot)...
