Interested in raising your own chickens?

Did you know that in El Paso you can have chickens in "quantities fewer than 6" as long as you apply for a permit? The closer the food to the market or buyer, the less food miles traveled, meaning fewer carbon emissions, better air quality, and more money kept in our local economy!

Residents just cannot have more than three roosters, so keep that in mind. Apply for a permit, build a coop, and start raising your own chickens today!
