Urban Chickens Permit

In November 2019, the Waukee City Council approved a new Urban Chickens ordinance. The ordinance allows Waukee residents living in R-1 and R-2 residential districts to house up to six female chickens (hens) for non-commercial use. Roosters are not allowed. 

Residents are asked to review the full ordinance and complete online training before applying for the required annual permit ($25).

Apply for the permit online, or print the form (PDF) and mail/deliver to:
Waukee Development Services
