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
WHY CAN WE HUMANS NEVER LIVE WITH ANY CREATURE GREAT OR SMALL IN HARMONY TOGETHER? THE FLAWED HUMAN LAWS DOMINATE ANIMALS OF ALL SPECIES THEIR RIGHTS TO SURVIVE THAT's WHY!
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
We are allowed in Australia, I have a chicken pen which I will soon have a couple of chooks soon as my pen, at least like cats & dogs they won't go & poo in other peoples yards, plus they give you eggs & are good for the garden :) X.
Your property is so beautiful..
I think they should be aloud to hav there chickens u got u own eggs it's the best
I live in the country, thank god...!!! And had over 50 chickens/hens, now by myself and have 2 mini hens and one rooster, better than a battery clock... Damn he is good... O.o
and all the barn cats and hens + rooster sleep together...
for those living inside city limits, with a sizable group and in their own yard, they should have the right to have anything they want, (gov. Is full of chicken shit, is all about money $$$ they should't charge for permits...!!!! People needs the money to build a nice chicken house....!!!!!
We should rise Chiken .
I looked at this site but I did not sign this petition. I agree a person shld have the right to raise chickens if they want but I don't know how my name got on here!
Raising chickens not only benefits the environment, but organic eggs are more healthier for you. Flordia really....? GET WITH THE PROGRAM...Healthy for humans and the environment.
Hmm - seems kind of strange to me that it's acceptable to keep wild animals in possibly appalling conditions, but not domestic animals?
