Department of Agricultural Certification Needed?

Asked July 26, 2020, 10:07 AM EDT

Hello and Thank You again! Someone at the city offices where my mini-farm is located, intimated that there is a certificate from the Department of Agriculture required of me in order to keep chickens, is this true? Being a Law and Order kind of girl, I don't want to be doing anything illegal, but I've never heard of this and I think she's just harassing me. Where can I go to find out about all the laws concerning farming in my state?

Kent County Michigan

As far as I am aware, you do not need a certificate from the state to keep chickens.
