Chicken Keepers

This page will have information about chicken keeping, for those who already have chickens or those who are thinking about chickens!

The Laconia Chicken ordinance did not pass, much to our dismay. Hopefully someone will bring it forward again for consideration.

Chicken feed is available locally from Osborne Agway in Winnisquam, and Gilford True Value in Gilford. Both offer organic and non-organic feed options. Gilford True Value will special order feed from Green Mountain Organic Feeds, and usually has soy-free layer pellets in stock. They also carry Poulin Grain feeds, which like Green Mountain Organic Feeds is a New England family-owned company

For sick chicken issues, contact MacDonald Veterinary Services in Gilford NH.
