    I just moved to Middle Tennessee from Phoenix, AZ. I am looking forward to starting a new flock here once we find a house. We are considering putting an offer down on a house with a Dickson address, but it is actually outside city limits. Does anyone know the chicken laws for Dickson? Do they apply if you are "outside city limits"? I haven't found anything that is very clear. I don't want to buy a house in a place I can't have chickens.

    Thanks!

    [​IMG] I would think you'd be OK outside city limits but you might want to do some checking.

    You need to call codes and find out. I saw a news story about a man in Dickson that was being ordered to get rid of his chickens that he has had for 30+ years. He was grandfathered in BUT they said they are not the SAME chickens.... [​IMG] you would be better off know in advance. I would think if your property was zoned agricultural you would be OK.

    I live in Dickson county. From what I have observed anytime you are not in city limits of one of the towns you will for sure see chickens! :D

    That is good to hear! I found a Dickson zoning map last night and the property isn't even on the map, but we are going to call around to triple check. In AZ, my HOA changed their rules to ban chickens right after I got chickens! We did keep them, but always wondered if we were going to get caught.

    Thanks for everyone's help! [​IMG]
