Chickens in Town Legal in Hanna

Chickens Are Legal

Fresh eggs anyone? The third and final reading of ordinance #349, legalizing keeping chickens in the Town of Hanna, was passed, approved, and adopted by the Town Council on July 22, 2014. You must apply for a permit to keep chickens in town at the Hanna town office, and the Council and/or Planning Commission will approve your permit if your plans comply with the rules set forth in ordinance #349. Only six chickens are permitted. No roosters are permitted, as they are considered too noisy. (Don’t worry; chickens lay eggs without a rooster’s help, but the eggs are not fertilized and will not produce chicks.) There are other rules about the size and position of the chicken coop. Questions? Ask Vivian at the office at 325-9424.
