The surveys on chickens are in, and most respondents to the county’s question on allowing chickens in residential areas were in favor of the idea. But county commissioners do not appear to be so inclined as to allow homeowners to have chickens clucking around in the backyard.

Earlier this year, the commissioners looked at amending the zoning ordinance to allow up to four chickens to be kept in the backyards of those parcels classified as R-1 but ultimately voted it down. Of 73 responses to the county’s survey on chickens, 61 were in favor of it and 12 were opposed to having chickens on residential-zoned properties. Sixteen of the respondents live in subdivisions.
