    Hi Jim, it looks like your planning commission is right now considering to allow a small number of hens - now would be the time for you to act - here is the link to the agenda - go to page 32:

    http://www.egplanning.org/commissio...03-03-11-agenda-item-4.1.pdf#search='chickens'

    The fact that the planning staff is recommending adoption of allowing 6 hens to residents of Elk Grove is excellent news for you!

    Just checked with Elk Grove's Planning comission, I was told that in thirteen days it will be legal to have have six hens as pets. Cages , pens and coops have to be kept clean. Also The setback requirement is gone. I hope this helps.
    Happy Chicken Keeping

    Thank you SO much for the reply!!! That is great news. It would be nice to eventually have it in print so I would feel 100% safe, since I went ahead and started raising them anyway!!
    Thanks again!!
