Urban chickens are popular, but are they for your home or your community? If you are a homeowner thinking of raising chickens or a plan commission or city council member considering an ordinance change, Poultry in Urban Areas walks you through:


  • The benefits of raising chickens
  • Problems with raising chickens, and how to address them
  • Practical issues, such as providing shelter


This publication will help you understand what it takes to successfully raise chickens in an urban setting (4 pages; 2011).


Poultry in Urban Areas is the third publication in a new series called “Poultry for Small Farms & Backyards” that addresses the concerns of those who keep chickens in an urban or small farm setting. Also available: Producing Poultry on Pasture (A3908-01) and Pasture Poultry Ark (A3908-02).
