Chickens are Legal in Lombard!


We are glad to hear that residents of Lombard, IL can now keep chickens! The village board approved an ordinance on March 3, 2022. Congratulations to the Lombard folks who supported and worked for this ordinance.

According to the Village of Lombard website:

“On March 3, 2022, the Village Board approved an ordinance that allows residents to keep chickens (hens) in the rear yards of their single-family home, with a permit issued by the Village.” There is a limit of six hens. More info about the ordinance and permit is located Here.

There is much excitement on the Facebook Lombard Backyard Chickens community. This is a great page to join for Lombard residents interested in keeping chickens!

Pretty soon it’s going to be chickens, chickens, chickens in Lombard! Photo by Liz McCrory, kosmicstudio.org
