Borough of Yoe

150 North Maple Street, Yoe, PA 17313 • (717) 244-5904

We have recently been receiving complaints about chickens in the Borough.  Per our Ordinance chickens are allowed, however Roosters are not allowed, unless on a lot more than 10 acres.

 A total combined maximum of three pigeons, chickens, ducks, geese and/or similar fowl shall be kept on a lot of less than 20,000 square feet. If a lot exceeds 20,000 square feet, a maximum of 5 pounds of such fowl for each 1,000 square feet of lot area may be kept as an accessory use. If the total weight of such fowl exceeds 500 pounds, then the requirements shall be met for “raising of livestock or poultry.” roosters shall not be kept, except on a lot of more than 10 acres.
