Chicken permit application
If you're thinking about raising backyard chickens in Gresham, know these rules before getting started.
The Gresham Revised Code Article 7.17 outlines the rules and regulations:
A chicken permit is $50, valid for two years, and allows up to three adult hens.
Bring your application to City Hall or mail it with the permit fee to: 1333 NW Eastman Parkway c/o Community Development Services.
Your permit will be mailed to you.
For more information call permits at 503-618-2845.
A chicken coop can be simple or extravagant, but the basics each coop and run should provide:
Predators include hawks, owls, raccoons, opossums, and dogs and cats.
A rat or other rodent problem is likely because the chicken feed is easy to get at.
Try not to feed the chickens in the yard by throwing food on the ground for them to scratch at; this attracts rodents too.
