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.

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!

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.

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.

Bad idea in town. No matter how clean you keep they smell, & what to do with all that manure? Grew up on farm, had our own for years. Chickens belong in country.

If you lived in the city would you want stinky chickens next door? I don't think so. I grew up on a farm & had our own for years. No matter if you clean coop every day they still smell bad, & where do you put all that manure. Bad idea in town. They belong in the country.
