Recently, the City of Jacksonville passed an ordinance allowing for the raising of backyard poultry. Three hundred permits were allowed, and have since been issued. 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!
