More Brooding About Chickens
A reader brought to my attention this article from the New York Times, published on the very day Gossips published its chicken post, about raising chickens in Westchester County: "Poultry Proximity: Plus or Minus?" This statement from the article may have some relevance for Hudson: "In general, the more densely populated towns and villages in the southern part of the county do not allow [raising poultry on residential property]." Or Hudson could follow the example of New Castle where "homeowners on 10 acres or more may raise hens and roosters, and residents on smaller lots may request a variance." The size of a single lot in Hudson is what--26 by 102 feet?
