    If you keep chickens in a residential area in your back garden how many can you have and is it right that the coop needs to be a meter away from the boundary with next door, thanks

    Not sure, but is there anything mentioned on the deeds to the house?
    If you are renting then you may need to ask your landlord....

      I don’t know either - your local council should have a list of their byelaws somewhere. Otherwise, is there a local chicken keeping club/society you could approach?

          I do know that if you have 50 or more chickens you need to register with DEFRA

            You're not allowed cockerels in a built up area, because of the noise pollution I suppose. Never heard it mentioned they can't be on the boundary line. Mine are!

              Here in Edinburgh you can put up huts etc in your garden without needing planning permission if they comply with certain maximum height and size limits, and are a minimum of a metre away from your shared boundary. This applied to the summerhouse we just put up.

              I imagine a chicken coop would be the same.

              You should check your local council's website for size regs.

                ....of course someone has to complain, or the council won't know. Best give cockerels a miss, as Sarriss suggests
