Once you discuss with your family  and decide you have the necessary space, time, and responsibility, you should conduct further research about owning chickens and the legality of backyard poultry. If you receive a chicken from Chickens for Children, you will also receive instructions and advice, but it is crucial for you to have a basic understanding of chickens in order to reap the numerous benefits. Greenville ordinances state that citizens within city limits may own up to four chickens without a nuisance of noise or odor. If you live outside of Greenville city limits, or in another city or state, be sure to read your city's ordinances regarding backyard poultry.  Use the following websites to find out more about chickens and explore your local chicken laws.
