    I am amazed that so many municipalities don't allow chickens!!

    Here in NYC you can't have a rooster, but hens are fine. Here is the copy of our code:

    (11) Birds and Fowl (Aves): All predatory or large birds, including, but not limited to,
    eagle, hawk, falcon, owl, vulture, condor, emu, rhea and ostrich; roosters, geese, ducks
    and turkeys prohibited or otherwise regulated pursuant to ยง 161.19 of this Code, the
    Agriculture and Markets Law or applicable federal law.

    I believe with the organic craze, urban chickening will become more and more popular, at least I hope so!!
