    Can any local folks help me find the laws/regs for chickens in Wilmington MA? I looked on the town website but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Specifically:
    1. what is the max # of chickens allowed? Does this number change depending on how much land you own?
    2. What are rules regarding roosters? And again, if you have a sizeable property, does this change?
    3. What are rules regarding selling eggs?

    TIA! No chickens yet, just trying to plan ahead. We have >5 acres, hence the Qs about if rules change for more land.

    Can you call this guy:
    Animal Control Officer: Christopher Sullivan
    978-658-5071

    He is the ACO for the Town of Wilmington. If he can't answer your questions, he will likely know who can!
    Good luck.
