Can I Keep Chickens on My Property?

The short answer is maybe . . .

You may keep chickens and fowl on your property as long as the poultry housing is not nearer than
one hundred (100) feet from any lot line.


TIP: Chapter 40-9.1 of the Revised Ordinances of the Borough of Ringwood lays out the parameters for keeping fowl on residential property. You are encouraged to read the ordinance (click here), as the information above represents only a portion of the ordinance.
