I would really love to raise a few hens! However, I live in a Township that apperently will not allow it. When I inquired, I was given the below explanation: Chickens are considered farms animals and fall under the Agricultural Uses and are permitted in a R-1-A district only. Minimum area of lots in the R-1-A district which are used, in whole or part, for agricultural purposes, shall be five acres, with a minimum frontage of 300 feet. I am zoned R1B and have about 1/3 of an acre. I understand there is a Michigan Right to Farm Act that allows people to raise chickens in the City, however, I believe I heard that it does not trump the City/Township rules regarding zoning? Can anyone let me know if I have a chance in raising some chickens, or am I screwed? Is there anyone else on this board that lives in Harrison Township and that has looked into this? Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
