But what are the exact requirements of the new ordinance?
-6 hens are the limit, roosters are still illegal.
-Backyards only, no side-yards.
-Coops must be at least 20 feet from your neighbors house. -Coops must be at least 10–50 feet away from property lines, or in the center of your backyard.
-Feed must be kept in rodent-proof containers.
-Hens are not allowed to roam freely; they must be confined to your backyard.
Thank you to Mary and Michael Songster for their persistence over the years which has finally paid off.
Enjoy those eggs everyone!
