    We are new to this and I have been looking for what the laws are in my area. I live in an unincorporated part of Plainfield IL but I am part of Wheatland TWP. Does anyone know what they are? Any help would be great!!!

    Your best bet for getting information would probably be calling the township office. If you google it hopefully you can find the a web page or phone number. I bet since the area is unincorporated that there won't be too many restrictions. Good luck, I hope you get chickens soon.
