Anne Colby added this to Is a Backyard Chicken Coop Right for You?Jun 21, 2017

A good backyard chicken coop provides a henhouse for egg laying, perches for roosting and sleeping, and a fenced-in run for pecking, roaming and doing what chickens do. You can keep it basic — with walls, windows, a door and a roof — or create a mini architectural masterpiece. If you’re a confident DIYer with basic carpentry skills, you can build one, or you can leave it up to a carpenter or builder who specializes in animal enclosures. Unless you live in an area zoned for agriculture, check with your local zoning office to find out about ordinances for keeping chickens, which can restrict the number of birds and location of the coop.

Chickens? Roosters? Your planning department can tell you if structures for them or another proposed exterior modification, like a sport court or cabana, is allowed where you live, and what restrictions exist for design and placement. Whatever exterior modification you are considering, there will be rules and guidelines. These usually exist for the protection of the neighbors and include height restrictions for trellises, which are likely 10 to 12 feet high, and setbacks that specify the distance your addition must keep from each property line, which could range from 5 to 20 feet.There are risks to ignoring the process. In one instance we provided consultation for a friend whose new sport court had to be physically modified, including via saw cutting and substantial concrete demolition, because it did not conform to city guidelines by a few feet. A neighbor complained, and the proper steps had not been taken to ensure conformance.

18. Zoning and town ordinances for animals. Have a notion that you may one day want backyard chickens or another unconventional pet? Check local ordinances before committing to a house, or you may never get the pets you have your heart set on.
