I feel like this thread must exist somewhere with so many Portlanders on this forum, but I searched several times and couldn't find anything. I thought I'd start a thread, not only for me, but for new members from the city. I have three hens in my backyard. I thought the law was that Portlanders could have a maximum of three and NO roosters. But lately I've been noticing yards that have more than three and I saw a rooster at a nursery. Now, I'm not after ratting anyone out...I would never do such a thing. But, if it's legal to have more than three, I'd like to know it. And even though I don't want a rooster, no knowledge is bad knowledge, right? So, who lives here and has bothered to find out the exact law regarding chickens in Portland? What's the word on roosters? Is there any legal step that owners of chickens must take, like registering? If this thread already exists and someone knows where it is, a link post will suffice, but I know new members will want to just search the term "Portland, Oregon" in this section and find what they're looking for.
