    My husband and I just moved here from eastern NC and I have absolutely no clue how to find local laws regarding backyard chickens. I found the town ordinances online, but I didn't see anything pertaining to chickens (or any animals for that matter.) We have never owned chickens so I am completely lost when it comes to finding out what is allowed and what isn't. Thank you for any help you can provide!

    I can't find anything that mentions them at all. I did find that their definition of "agricultural use" includes poultry and a lot of minutes from local meetings about people demanding to keep backyard chickens (which leads me to believe that the current interpretation is that backyard chickens are not allowed).

    This thread is as close as I can get to actual information:
