Do you want to be that neighbor? How many chickens are legal in Amarillo

There are many benefits to having backyard chickens. I know that. I flirted with the idea. They eat insects, produce eggs, and taste great when mixed with eleven herbs and spices.

Also, do you have seen the price of eggs lately?

But before you get into poultry…find out how many chickens you’re allowed to own within the city limits of Amarillo.

First, how many acres do you have?

The rules regarding backyard chickens in Amarillo all pretty much depend on one main factor. How many hectares do you have?

In Amarillo, you can have four (4) chickens per quarter acre. Less than a quarter? No chickens.

Regarding roosters, the most recent information I have found is that the number of roosters cannot exceed 25% of a flock.

I lived next door to a guy who thought a rooster would be a great addition to his barnyard. The stupid thing must have been blind, because it only sang in the middle of the night when everyone was asleep.

Is it a good idea to have chickens in your garden?

If you have at least a quarter acre to spare, I guess it could be. Are you ready to take care of the birds and the chicken coop as you should so they don’t spread the pests and that unholy smell?

So go ahead. If you don’t know what these things mean, then you might want to do some research or at least watch a YouTube video first.

Self-sufficient, off-the-grid life is cool…if you do it right

This is the problem I had with my neighbor. He thought he was sticking it to the man by getting his chickens and his rooster. He was tired of paying a rich man’s price for something as simple as an egg.

He was defending the worker, and was a total jerk about it.

His chicken coop was right against my fence. His cock was loud at the worst times. The smell still haunts me. It drove my dog ​​crazy every time I let him out in the garden.

I want to live the independent, off-the-grid lifestyle. I myself have plans for this, but not at the expense of everyone around me. Plus, if you decide you’re going to fight the law on this one, you might end up winning a misdemeanor as a prize.

If you have any questions, a good place to start would be with Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare.
