Municipal Code – Coming Home To Roost

Location: Nederland, CO 80466, USA
Mayor Gierlach and the hen, 'Milky Way'
Some residents were participating in one of the latest sustainability trends by keeping backyard hens.

The Board of Trustees (BOT) had not clarified whether they were legal or not, until now.

To avoid people getting their feathers ruffled, the Board of Trustees approved Ordinance 694amending the Town Municipal Code to permit the keeping of Chicken Hens and to require a permit for the same.

Here is a link to the Nederland Chicken Hen Permit Application.

It was slightly tricky, depending on whether you define a hen as a pet, or as livestock, and it effected chapters 6, 7, and 16 of the municipal code. You might say, our eggs weren't all in one basket.
