How to research Urban Chicken ordinances online
From Urban Chickens Network
- In the search field type: the name of your city and state and "municipal codes chickens" (e.g. Redwood City CA municipal codes chickens)
- Generally, the first couple of results will include a link to your city's online municipal code database, sometimes even including the actual code related to chickens. The titles that animals seem to fall under are title 6 or title 10, so look there if you can.
- If you can search, try the term "chicken" but if that doesn't bring up any results, try "fowl" or "poultry" instead.
- If those fail to work, you can search on "rooster" to see if there's a specific law on the books prohibiting roosters (and the chicken-related laws will be close to it in the code).
If you're looking to write your own code, you can follow the guidelines in this post from the blog: urban chicken laws: how to write your own.
