Hi All! Our family is currently in the process of house hunting and I currently own 5 hens. I've been searching all over this page and all over the internet to find the ordinances regarding animals and I haven't found much. We live in Washington State, Olympia area to be more specific. I found the ordinances that a BYC member posted back in 2012 but I was hoping for something a little more current. The ones that I found for Thurston County off of their site says that chickens in residential districts are PROHIBITED. How do I find out if a home is within a "residential district"? The house we are currently thinking of putting an offer on is in Rochester and it sits on just under an acre. I also would love to have other animals like goats (which are PROHIBITED according to the same site), rabbits (ALLOWED), and more but don't want to buy this place for the property to have these animals, then find out I can't have them at all! :-( Any help would be great appreciated! Thank you so much in advance!
