On June 2, 2014 the Town Council passed an ordinance establishing new regulations regarding backyard hens. The Town now permits residents to keep up to 8 hens with a backyard hen permit. For more information and best practices for keeping backyard hens please see our Guide to the Rules and Regulations + Best Practices for keeping backyard hens. If you are interested in keeping backyard hens and want to apply for a permit, please use the backyard hen permit application. If you have questions or need assistance in the permitting process, you can contact the Planning Department at (919) 773-4449.
