    Hi, my name is Ben Norman and I am new to this site and interested in getting some chickens for my backyard. I can not find the info on the city of Palmdale's site that says one way or the other about having chickens or not. I live in a tract home near Highland High School on the west side. My wife and I have lived here for 15 years, we have 2 little ones, and we enjoy it here. Would like to get some chickens going for the fun and the eggs. We also have dogs so I imagine we will need some training on them not eating the chickens. Hoping they will just be good with it but we will have to feel it out. First, I need some help in finding out where it says I can have chickens in my backyard and how many. I have heard it is up to 6 which would be perfect for us. Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Ben Norman

    Welcome to BYC, Ben! Unfortunately I am not familiar with Palmdale's laws on that, so I can't help there. :/

    You might want to join your state thread and see if anyone there knows. It's great to have you with us! :)

    You might try asking at your village or town hall. If you have any chickens in the area, that would be a good sign. Hope you will be able to have some. Good luck
