You may be asking yourself, "Can I have chickens in Woodland Park, Colorado? Can I have them in Divide, Colorado...what about Florissant, Colorado?"


Well the answer varies. Chickens are clasified under Domestic Small Livestock, Poultry and Fowl. This term includes rabbits, chinchillas or similar animals; chickens, turkeys, pigeons, and small birds and ducks kept for non-comercial purposes.


Even if the County allows these animals. you still need to check with your Covenants because they will override any County rules.
