    Hello,

    I am new to this forum, and as such I am not sure if I am posting in the right area, so please bare with me.

    I was wondering where I might find information about whether or not I would be allowed to legally own and care for chickens in my area. I live in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY

    Thank you,

    Hans

    Call your County extension office, they should know the rules in your area.

    I got my answer, and in case anyone else is wondering, the answer is yes for the Town of Smithtown in Suffolk County.

    Thank you!

    Good deal!
    If you have questions once you get your chickens, the folks on the Poultry forum are very knowledgable! :)
