Backyard Chickens now legal in Providence

The law limits residents to one hen per 800 square feet of lot area and a maximum of six hens on any property. It prohibits roosters, the slaughtering of chickens on residential properties, and keeping chickens in the house.
It calls for chicken coops to be well-vented and predator-resistant, with enough room for at least two square feet per chicken. And it states that chicken waste must be composted and feed properly stored.
