Are chickens and rabbits permitted to be kept in Montgomery?

Yes, residents are permitted to keep up to six chickens (hens only, no roosters) or rabbits and kept in an enclosed structure.  Animal enclosures require a zoning permit and must be constructed no closer than 15 feet to the side and rear property lines.  The animal enclosure may not be visible from the public street and appropriately screened from abutting properties with landscaping, a fence or a wall constructed and maintained according to the Code.  The same setback requirements also apply to rabbit hutches, dog houses or other types of animal enclosures.
