Check your local councils website, they normally have information on what animals can be kept on a block.

Or don't ask them. Our local council web site has a Q&A. Someone asked if they could have a rooster in town and the answer that came back was your not allowed to have chooks. Nice for a rural town. :crazy:

Six birds, with permission?!? :swear: When we left Armadale the number was 20 (which we stretched to 40-60!) I am really surprised and disappointed in the City of Gosnells.

I would say move to the country, but even here in sunny Narrogin the Town has been trying to push poultry out. I think this is more a couple of individuals in the Town trying to "urbanise" Narrogin. I know people around town who have been ordered to get rid of their roosters and others who were told to downsize. I bailed up the Mayor and he assured me that poultry will continue to be part of living here but I still have doubts. I also know of councillors who are less than supportive of backyard poultry.

First thing I would do if I was you would be to join a poultry club. It doesn't give you complete security but it does give you a little support in your struggle. People there will be able to tell you of loopholes and give you contacts at the council who maybe able to assist. Are your neighbours friendly? If so you should have little drama (just remember to send a dozen eggs over or a freerange roast chicken occasionally). If they aren't the feather loving type good coop design/care can almost eliminate all evidence of illegal egg production facilities.

I'm in Moreton Bay Regional (Pine Rivers) so for me it's the following

Poultry and roosters
Allotments less than 600 m2 – no poultry permitted
Allotments up to 1199 m2 - twelve poultry
Allotments up to 3999 m2 - twenty poultry
Allotments greater than 2 hectares - more than twenty poultry
Keeping of more than twenty poultry on allotments greater than two hectares requires a permit.
Allotments less than 6000 m2 – no roosters permitted

The other two shires that became part of Moreton have different rules for each, not looking forward to when they rewrite it all under one by-law.
