Limiting chickens within city limits

Posted on August 30, 2021 at 2:24 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  Have there been considerations to limiting chickens within city limits? The chickens draw in wild animals such as skunks and raccoons which cause various issues to neighboring homes. The displeasant smell of skunk every night is becoming increasingly irritating. 

A.   Established City of Laramie Municipal Code 6.06.030 (Rabbits and fowl) does limit the number of rabbits and fowl allowed on the premises of any owner within city limits—see below:

Rabbits and fowl are allowed within the city; providing that they meet the following requirements:

       J.        Not more than twelve of these animals in any combination over one hundred days old shall be kept on the premises of any owner.

An exception is granted to licensed veterinary clinics for the number of animals kept.
