Animals and pets
The municipal code defines animals as "every non-human species." Chickens or foul are not specifically mentioned, but are regulated as "animals" and are permitted in the Town. The animal code allows a resident to keep a total of six animals. The maximum number of household pets allowed per residence in the zoning code is four (a litter of cats or dogs may be kept for a period of time not to exceed three months from birth). If a resident chooses to maintain chickens on a single parcel within the Town, the total number must not exceed the maximum number of animals and household pets allowed within the municipal boundaries. For example, if a resident keeps one cat and two dogs (household pets), the resident would be allowed to keep up to three chickens (animals), in addition to three household pets. Homeowner's association covenants may be more restrictive than the municipal code
and impose additional regulations.
