I moved to York Township Pa about a year ago. We are zoned rural and have just under half an acre. I recently decided to look into raising chickens to work towards being self sustaining, as a natural bug repellent for my garden, and for the enjoyment of having a few girls. I started to research what I need and how to care for the birds. I felt ready to start working on a coop and figured I better check with zoning to be sure I was legal. Imagine my shock when they told me you needed a minimum of 2 acres! My girlfriend that lives in Wrightsville can have chickens, and her land is half the size of mine in a more urban setting. So of course I am not happy about the ordinance. I came to backyard chickens hoping to find some advise on what I can do to get the ordinance changed. All help is greatly appreciated!
