Backyard Flocks

The City of Jacksonville passed an ordinance allowing for the raising of backyard poultry. The City of Atlantic Beach and the City of Neptune Beach are currently in the pilot of their backyard poultry program and are allowing 50 homeowners to own chickens, check with your planning department to see if there are permits available. Homeowners are allowed up to 5 hens per 1.5 acres. If your home is zoned rural or agricultural, you do not need a permit, but may find some useful information here!
