Local Laws and Regulations

Hens make the perfect addition to any backyard. However, you should first check if there are any local ordinances barring the raising of chickens.

Some of these regulations include but aren’t limited to the proper use of chicken enclosures, limitation on the number of chickens per household, and possibly mandatory inspections and vaccinations.
