    As of right now, I am not entirely sure what the laws or ordinances are where I live. I've done a little bit of research but haven't come up with much. The county surveyor is coming in a couple days and he is known for tipping off the township I live in of "injustices" in our neighborhood (too many outbuildings, barking dogs, unkempt yards- you name it, he's complained about it!). Before I got my chickens, I couldn't find anything that said I couldn't have chickens but, I also didn't find anything that said I could. So what I'd like to know is where should I be looking to find this information?

    look at the section under animals, then see 500.03 and 500.04 It looks like you aren't suppose to have chickens if you are in the city

    I don't live in city limits, so that's a good thing. I live in Baldwin Township- which is right outside of Princeton.
