Regarding Chickens

Several years ago, the Village Board passed a local law which made certain allowances for the possession of chickens within the Village.  This law is primarily intended to allow a small amount of chickens to be kept for the purposes of home egg production.  Please note that there are specific requirements within the law such as proper housing (no free range), number of chickens (max 6, the prohibition of roosters and the need for a permit to possess them.  These requirements have been promulgated to both allow the possession of chickens while protecting surrounding neighbors from potentially bothersome intrusions.

While some might like to hear “Chanticleer” bright and early each morning, or some might find free range chickens quaint, please be advied that this is not a universal acceptance.

Please review the Local Law 1 of 2017 below.  We request that if you have chickens, please respect your neighbors and comply with the requirements of this law.

Local Law #1 of 2017  –  Chapter108-3b

  1. No more than six (6) chickens may be kept on the property at any time. No roosters shall be permitted.
  1. All chickens must be kept in a secure pen or enclosure, constructed and maintained to prevent the chickens from running at large. Only one pen or enclosure shall be permitted on any residential property.  All pens or enclosures must be located at least twenty (20) feet from the side and rear lot lines, and at least thirty (30) feet from any neighboring residence.  No pen or enclosure shall be permitted in a front yard, meaning that all pens or enclosures must be located to the rear of the rear wall of the primary structure.
  1. All pens or enclosures must be resistant to rodents and predators, and provide chickens with adequate protection from inclement weather. The pen or enclosure must be constructed of materials that are reasonably complementary to existing structures within the view of the pen or enclosure.  The pen or enclosure must be regularly cleaned so as to keep it sanitary and odor free.  All feed for chickens must be kept within a building in rodent-proof containers, and may not be kept outside.  The storage of chicken manure shall not be allowed.
  1. It shall be unlawful to allow or permit chickens to engage in habitual or unrestrained noise which creates an unreasonable disturbance or nuisance to neighboring properties.
  1. The keeping of chickens shall be authorized only upon obtaining a permit from the Code Enforcement Officer. Said permit shall be made upon an application form to be promulgated by the Board of Trustees and upon satisfactory inspection(s) by the Code Enforcement Office to verify compliance with the requirements of this section.  The permit fee may be fixed by resolution of the Board of Trustees.  Permit applicants shall agree to allow the Code Enforcement Officer to enter the premises of the applicant upon reasonable notice during daylight hours to inspect the pen or enclosure to verify compliance with this section.
