Who doesn’t want a neighbor that gives you free food? The urban farmer, and specifically the backyard chicken has had a huge spike in popularity over the last 10 years. If you are thinking about having backyard chickens, here are a few things to consider:
- The City of Seattle allows up to 8 chickens per lot.
- Roosters are NOT allowed
- Your chicken coop (or whatever structure you house your chickens in) must be at least 10 feet away from any residential structure on a neighboring lot.
A member of the Seattle Living Spaces family was kind enough to let us film our #QuickTipTuesday video about backyard chickens at her house. Meet the chickens!
