Chicken Laws

Asked April 24, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

I'm looking at homes in Montgomery County, PA, (specifically Whitemarsh & Plymouth Meeting area) and would like to keep some chickens. Is there a good resource for finding out what the local ordinances are regarding the keeping of chickens?

There is a list of city ordinances for different states. PA information can be found at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/3/Laws/tag/pennsylvania-ordinances/.

If the city you are looking for is not there, I suggest you contact your local county Extension office.
