the new amendment that was passed in 2011 in the state of florida farm act states you can have any animal or plant etc, that is benifical to man. now this is key ---no county or city or town can interfer and you can build without permits , fines, charges , so if they try to stop you refer them to the state, the state is the only one who can stop you.
Do you know where I can find this information? Would like to get a few chickens, and would like to have all my bases covered.
i am getting a copy of it and will put it on face book, no town city or county can stop you from haveing your farm animals.
I look forward to reading the amendment. Thanks.
oh yes they can , all it takes is a city ordinance
Mareka Huitt why not get some hogs too ??if you want a farm , buy one . people don't live in town to be near hogs & chickens
As long as everyone keeps their chicken coops clean and the animals healthy... I see nothing wrong we raised chickens and had no problems.......Michigan
Why just Lee county? Anywhere in the world!
Absolutely should be allowed !! Change old redundant laws to keep up with our changing world.
I'm for this.
I love my chickens, the eggs are great. If the neighbors have issues,, lets outlaw weed eaters and leaf blowers.. Talking about something annoying on Saturday starting at 6:30am. I am lucky to live in the county and have no problems.
The general population will become less dependent on govt food saources.
See no reason that people who have gardens can have chickens if they take good care of them, why not :)
Owning your own chickens guarantees that the eggs you eat are healthy and will not contain any chemicals or hormones.
Yes I own my own chickens , it's the best eggs u ever eat
