I live in Oxford Michigan and I have been seriously considering getting a chicken coop. I have been reading a lot on this site on how to build the coop, the run and take care of your chickens, it never dawned on me to check to see if I could actually keep them. I am on a bit of a rural road and across the street (same road mind you) is farming land. I have 1 acre and today I just found out that I can not have chickens unless I am on 2 1/2 acres! Now I am mad! My daughter works for the Oxford leader and said that she saw an article about a women in Oxford that is going to try to change the ordinance and I want in for sure so I am hoping that you are on this site and answer! She did state that she saw this site listed in the article so I am giving it a shot! Hope you are here! If not, then I will keep reading on what it takes to get the ordinance changed. Have a beautiful day!
