i live in Palm bay Florida and am currently working with code inforcement on the interpretation of the chicken ordinances. I own two lots and I read the ordinance as you can have 4 chickens per 1/4 acre, but it's looking like code enforcement is saying its per house hold regardless of the property you own. I'm currently discussing thus with Arron Pool who is the highest person at code enforcement. We are waiting to hear the Inteperation from the city council. My argument is I pay taxes on each 1/4 acre and if you own 1 and can have 4 chickens, then if you own more 1/4 acres you should be able to have more chickens. My chickens are my kids pets an they raised then from babies and it will be difficult to explain why we can't keep them all.
