Is it legal to raise chickens in Alexandria? Last time I checked there are no poultry farms there, so this must have escaped from someone's yard.

I dont understand what everyone's problem is with chickens. Hens eat insects around your house and give you fresh eggs and meat that are far fresher than can be bought at the store. So what gives? Why all the hate towards chickens? It's not like anyone sets up a CAFO in their backyard so there is no odor. The manure is good for yards or can be composted and used as a soil enhancer/fertilizer in your garden. There is no odor associated with small numbers of chickens.

I lived in the County when chickens were allowed. This is a better place now.

If you want a farm, go buy a farm. Chickens have no place in a residential neighborhood.

What the hell is wrong with chickens?! You eat chicken don’t you? what a bunch of dumb fucks

Animals & Pets
In general, county rules allow residents to keep animals on their property, including cats, dogs, horses, livestock, and domestic fowl. Animals may not be kept on a residential property for commercial purposes. There also may be setback, location and permit requirements for barns and shelters for animals.

A residential property’s lot size also determines how many animals may be kept:

* * *
“Domestic Fowl
Fowl, such as chickens, ducks, turkeys, and geese, may only be kept on lots that are two acres or greater. They shall not exceed the ratio of one bird unit per one acre, with a bird unit defined as:

32 chickens = 1 bird unit
16 ducks = 1 bird unit
8 turkeys = 1 bird unit
8 geese = 1 bird unit
Only fowl six months or older are counted in the ratio"

* * *
