Port Orange Residential Chicken Program Receives Additional Support

Wed, Jan 23, 2019 at 3:50PM

Port Orange, FL - An ordinance allowing ownership of chickens in residential areas of Port Orange passed on Tuesday night at the City Council meeting upon second reading.

The vote was not unanimous, with Councilman Scott Stiltner voting against the motion.

Residents are now able to apply for the program, which will allow residents to own up to five female chickens so long as they conform to the regulations laid out in the ordinance as it pertains to housing, confinement and other general welfare concerns.

The ordinance states, “Up to five chickens per household by no more than thirty households, on owner-occupied single-family properties. Chickens and associated activities shall be kept for personal use only. Selling chickens, eggs, feathers, or chicken manure, or the breeding of chickens is prohibited.”

Applications can be submitted to the Community Development Department and will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the city receives 30 applications others will be placed on a waiting list.
