The Worldwatch Institute, a independent research group that focuses on global environmental issues, reported that cities across the U.S. have allowed residents to raise a limited number of chickens on their residential properties in the last few years.
Madison, Wisconsin reversed its poultry ban in 2004.
According to Article 705 of York City code, poultry are not allowed to be raised within the city.
Other municipalities in the county allow chickens.
Do you raise chickens or other animals for food for your family or to sell locally?
If so, what got you started?
