Delafield Town okays chicken ordinance

Town of Delafield – The Town Board can now move on from what became a fowl issue.

The board Tuesday approved ordinances that would allow residents to raise chickens. As part of the approval, the board set an initial license fee of $75 with an annual renewal fee of $25. The cost is to cover administrative costs as well as an on-site inspection by the zoning administrator.

Under the ordinance, a resident would be allowed to keep no more than eight chickens, residents would need to get a license and chicken coops must meet double the required setback. No commercial activities or roosters would be allowed.
