Welcome to Asheville City Chickens

Thanks for stopping by Asheville City Chickens.  This site is dedicated to the cause of Urban Chickens in the City of Asheville.  Currently Asheville City Chickens is focused on having the City of Asheville relax its Animal Control Ordinance to allow more household within the city to raise their own small flocks.  Please check the site often for updates on the progress of the Ordinance provisions.   If you have chickens or are interested in having chickens, check out the Ashevilel City Chickens wiki to share information on urban chickens.  Also if you are interested in becoming part of the movement check out our Yahoo Group or Facebook Group.
