Can I keep poultry on my property?

In residential zones R1 and R2, you may keep up to eight chickens as an accessory use. In zone RL – Rural Living, chickens are considered livestock and therefore a permitted use also. In the C-Commercial and I-Industrial zones where the parcel or lot is used for residential purposes, backyard chickens are allowed through the approval of a conditional use permit. Please refer to Chapter 17.20.029 of the Zoning Regulations for more information about the keeping of backyard chickens. Also view the Handouts page.
