Chickens in the Village

A number of surrounding communities have established a permit process for the keeping of chickens in residential areas. At this time the Village of Bellevue has not approved a process for this. Therefore, the keeping of chickens in residential neighborhoods is a violation of the Municipal Code and if discovered, the chickens will need to be removed.

Chickens are permitted to be kept on properties that are zoned AG - Agricultural or RR – Rural Residential. If you have any questions or need to verify your zoning, please contact the Community Development Department during normal business hours at 468-5225.
