Yes! The City of Durham allows chickens! Currently the ordinance allows for hens only. No roosters are allowed within the city limits. All the information you will need to obtain a limited agricultural permit is here. (You will need to scroll down to Limited Agriculture Permits.) Keep in mind that your neighborhood's Homeowner's Association may have their own restrictions so it is best to check before you head to the store to buy chicken wire.
