Are chickens allowed in Hamilton?

Chickens are only allowed in the RRS (Rural Resource Section) zone of Hamilton, which is behind the Hamilton Marketplace to Monmouth County Line.  

However, the chicken coup must be 200 feet off the property line.  If you live in the rural zone and do not have enough property to follow this, you cannot have chickens.

You can have 100 chickens/acre in the rural zone.
