Benicia Community Chickens
If you are considering keeping backyard chickens, you’re in good company. Benicia’s chicken population is growing, along with all of the benefits chickens provide: fresh, delicious, and highly nutritious eggs, pest control, and compost! Hens can also provide hours of entertainment for your family. They each have a unique personality, and keeping three or more hens is ideal for their social structure.
You might be interested to know that Benicia’s Municipal Code allows families in single-family homes to keep up to ten hens. Multi-family residences are allowed up to six. Roosters are not permitted. Hens must be at least 20 feet from your neighbor’s house. No permit is required.
