so i have lived in my current town for 12 yrs and have owned chickens for 9 yrs. last fall i received a letter stating i am in violation of keeping poultry. amending the livestock and kennel regulation ordinance of jan 30,1973. no person , firm or corporation shall keep any fowl or any other livestock or maintain any kennel at any place with in the borough. excepting if you live on 1 acre of land. remove all chicken (fowls) immediately to prevent any further action. ------------------------------------ i have not done any thing in the time since my letter but in later months another person received a letter a bit different then mine. she lives a block from me. she has 2 chickens been three years. she is going to attend the town meeting to try to get them to let us keep the chickens 2-6 birds. no free range no roaster. she tells me there are a total of 10 homes with chickens. i know there were two 12 yrs ago. i now know of her and one other home personally 1/2 block from me in another direction. i have an 8x12 in closed pen with a nice size coop attached all enclosed. i had up to 8 chickens but now have 4. 1 is 9 the others are 7yrs old. please wish us luck. i just want to let my birds finish out their lives with me. if no more i am fine with that but i dont want to have to get rid of them. in 9 yrs i have never had any issues with anyone about them.
