The Zoning Ordinance will prohibit anyone with a lot size of .4 acres from having chickens regardless of the Zoning. Minimum lot size requirements for the noncommercial keeping of livestock is determined by the zoning of your property.

I have .4 acres of property, enclosed by pine trees. Its an open backyard (meaning there are no other structures) I was always told you need at least 2 acres to have chickens here. Is this correct? Im just looking to have maybe 3 Rhode Island Reds as pets/for eggs. They would be well cared for, and would not roam (Id have a fenced in area) Please post any info and your experiences. If I have to have 2+ acres to have only a couple chickens, I suggest that rule be reformed! Thanks!
