Farm Animals

Chickens or Hens

On January 18, 2018 the City Council approved an amendment to Kaysville City’s Farm Animal Ordinance (Section 17-24), which allows residents to have fowl (chickens), rabbits or similar animals without receiving a permit from the city.  However, there are still limitations and requirements that must be followed when keeping these animals. Your property must be a minimum of 8,000 square feet in size to have any small farm animals, and the exact number is determined by your total property size as found in 17-24-2. Roosters are still not permitted. Any structures housing the animals must be located at least 15 feet away from your neighbor’s homes.  All farm animals must be kept within an enclosed area or structure which will contain the animals on your property. Odor, dust, noise and drainage must be controlled so as not to constitute a nuisance or hazard to neighboring properties.

Should you wish to keep any other type of farm animals you must first obtain a permit, unless you live in the A-5, A-1 or R-A zones.  Conditional use permits are approved by the Planning Commission.
