Here's the rules (more details to come soon, when I have more time):
-No selling eggs
-Must have a coop that's shielded from the street in front of your house
-No more than 5 combined dogs, cats, chickens (with not more than 3 dogs) per household
-Must get a permit within 6o days
The permit process is TBA, but it'll be free and most likely low key. Basically, if you have the good sense to figure out how to keep your chickens healthy and happy, you'll be fine.
This was not the most important issue that Council discussed yesterday, so it was dealt with pretty quickly and matter-of-factly.
This new pair of ordinances makes Bexley one of the most chicken-friendly suburbs around.
