City Permit

Until 2012 the City of Orlando did not allow chickens on residential property.  In May 2012 the city created the “Urban Chicken Pilot Program” that allowed for 25 families to have permits.  In 2013, the number of permits was expanded to 75 families and the number of hens allowed increased from 3 to 4.

Therefore, the first step for our chicken endeavor was to get a permit.  Contact with one of the city planners gave me everything I needed to do to secure a permit.
