If you’re considering raising chickens – whether you live within a city’s borders, or in an unincorporated part of the county – it’s important to know the following:

    • Is it legal to raise chickens where you live?
    • How many chickens can you legally have without a license/permit, and with one?
    • What are the building and setback regulations in your area regarding chicken coops? Contact your city or county government for answers.
    • Do you have enough space for a chicken coop?
    • How many chickens do you want (how many eggs can you use every week?)
    • What color eggs or variety of chicken do you want?
    • Do you want chicks or adult chickens?
