    Yes I have a little BR roo chick, I know I don't have to have one but I would feel better having one. We have cats in the area and the occasional fox, plus hawks every now and then so I would like him for body guard duties.

    Since you live in the county, not in the Lexington city limits, you have nothing to worry about. You can have as many roosters as you'd want but not have to worry about the authorities. Your neighbors may not like it but unless you live in an HOA, they wouldn't have any real recourse.

    BTW, welcome, Neighbor. I'm in Tyro.

    Hey all, I know this is an old thread, but we are moving into a house on the outskirts of Lexington, still considered in Lexington tho. Was anyone able to verify that it is okay to have chickens? I moved here from Florida almost a year ago, where I had tons of chickens and I'm missing them.
    TIA

    If you are in the city limits, just don't get roosters. In the county, no problems unless you move into a HOA of course.

    If youd like I have NPIP certified chickens and ducks I'd be happy to go over any agriculture aspect of it or possible sell you some chickens or ducks
