    Thank you , ChooksinChoppers for the help. I am really trying to get started and don't have a clue as to what to do....
    Can I even have them or what..? I have seen towns close that could and could not on here, but none specific to my area.

    not sure if you've already found the answer but i live in sewell. here is the town ordinance website with the ordinance on farm animals. http://www.ecode360.com/?custId=WA0294

    hope
    you figured it out by now though!

    just type "animals" in the search and you'll see it!

    Don't forget to check for "slaughterhouse" rules just in case you wanted to do your own meat processing.
    Some cities or towns may not regulate poultry but may regulate slaughter of animals.

    In my city, there is no code for chickens but does have slaughterhouse rules.
    "All slaughter houses must be licensed."
    "All slaughter houses must be inspected."
    "All slaughter houses must pay a fee for license based on quantity of animals slaughtered per year."
    "All slaughter house structures must be inspected for building codes."

    HTH,

    Cheers

    P.S. That Ecode360 is the shizzle for rizeal! [​IMG]
