Regulations for Chicken Coops in Buffalo, NY

You may need to follow specific regulations in Buffalo, NY, regarding keeping chickens. Here’s a brief overview of the regulations concerning chicken keeping in Rochester.

You must get a license from the City Clerk’s Office to raise chickens in Buffalo city limits. Each single-family or multifamily home can have up to five hens, but roosters aren’t allowed.

Keep the chickens in the backyard of residential areas, whether in a residential zoning district or near a residential property in other zoning areas.

Coop Placement and Size

The chicken coops or cages where the hens live must be placed at least 20 feet away from any door or window of a home, school, church, or other building where people live, except for your own home.

The chicken coops or cages where the hens are kept cannot be placed in the front or side yards along the street. They also need to be at least five feet away from the side yard boundary and 18 inches away from the rear yard boundary unless the rear boundary is also the side or front boundary of a neighboring property; in this case, the setback from that rear boundary should be five feet.

The combined area of all coops or cages on a property cannot exceed 32 square feet if you have up to five chickens. Additionally, no coop or cage’s height, alone or together, can be more than seven feet tall.

Cleanliness and upkeep

Keep the coop clean, dry, and sanitary at all times. Clean the outdoor enclosure regularly to avoid the buildup of animal waste.

Chickens must be kept to minimize odors, noise, and the presence of insects and rodents to avoid causing disturbances to nearby residents or properties. This also ensures compliance with the regulations outlined in the New York State and Erie County sanitary codes.

Chicken Coops for Sale in Buffalo NY: Commonly Asked Questions

What breed of chickens are best suited for backyard environments?

If you’re thinking about starting your backyard flock and need some great chicken breeds, we have some suggestions for you. The Rhode Island Red, Barred Plymouth Rock, and the Partridge Silkie are popular for beginners. For more information on raising backyard chickens and finding the right breeds, look at our blog post, “The 7 Best Chicken Breeds for New Farmers.”

How do I protect my chickens from predators?

Many chicken farmers often make mistakes when protecting their chickens from predators. One common error is building coops that aren’t strong enough, especially in areas where predators are common.

In places like New York, predators such as raccoons, coyotes, foxes, weasels, and even domestic dogs can easily break into coops made with weak wire and flimsy wood. If you know that predators are around, it’s best to avoid using chicken wire and instead choose stronger materials for your coop. Make sure your coop’s doors have sturdy latches, and properly seal the windows to prevent predators from getting inside.

What should I feed my chickens, and how much?

In addition to their regular feed, chickens can benefit from nutritious greens like lettuce, kale, and turnip greens. They may also enjoy occasional treats such as watermelon, strawberries, and blueberries, but it’s important not to give them too much.

On average, a laying hen eats about a quarter pound of feed daily, up to roughly one and a half pounds per week. However, this amount can vary depending on the size or breed of your chickens.
