Residents seek to modify HenryCounty GA Ordinance
Larry & June Stanley, Stockbridge GA, have started theprocess to request a
 
change to the Henry County ULDC inregard to keeping fowl in R-1 zoned areas. Currently therestriction requires a minimum of three acres and RA zoning. We are happy to work with county staff towarddefining specific requirements and authorizations for the codechange.Note the attached spreadsheet of other Georgia counties and cities where fowl, specificallychickens, are allowed for non-commercial uses. R-1 zoning currently allows multiple dogs,cats, even pigs as pets. Fowl such as chickens, quail or ducks pose no more nuisance orpublic health problem and they do produce eggs for personal consumption.It is our intention to purchase three or four Araucana chickens andhouse them in a coop within our fenced back yard in an R-1subdivision. The lot is heavily wooded and there is ample spacebetween neighboring houses or property lines. Araucana are brightly colored birds thatproduce blue eggs. Blue-shelled eggs of  Araucana chickens have higher protein levelsand lower cholesterol levels than marketeggs.We hope you will join us in this endeavor. Please contact June at
