    Hello! We have nine chickens in Manlius, New York in the Town of Manlius. We were under the impression that it was okay to have chickens where we live, but now the zoning officer is giving us a problem. He claims that we are not allowed to have chickens here. We have approximately2.5 acres and we are zoned R1. Does anyone have any information on this? We would really appreciate any help or advice on this because we love our chickens; they are our pets and important family members, and we do not want to have to get rid of them! Please help! Thank you! Bonnie and Tim Morse

    If you go to the section of: Local Chicken Laws & Ordinances (and how to change them), they might be able to help you more. Good luck though!! It's always dumb when people have an acre or more and people get on to them about having chickens:(
