I have had a wee look on Google but figured with access to so many knowledgeable animal lovers it would be easier to just ask here!


I am just about to seal the deal on a property in Melbourne, Western Suburbs, and would like to take in some rescued chickens asap, however I am unsure on the rules etc on being able to keep them in suburbia.

Can anyone shed some light here?

Thanks  peace

You have to check the council website for whichever area you are in, and they usually have guidelines on those sorts of things.
