    Does anyone live in unincorporated DuPage County Illinois and have a chicken coop? If so, have you had any problems or known of any common practices which are accepted by the county.

    I reviewed the county ordinances, but they do not address building or permits for a chicken coop nor is it specifically prohibited. I live on an acre property and I don't believe my neighbors would notice or particularly care if I had chickens. I'm only concerned without an ordinance there is potential I could run into legal problems which could result in getting rid of the chickens.
