Monrovia, CA


Below I have referenced two sections from the City of Monrovia Municipal Code (MMC) that refer to the keeping regulations of certain animals (including poultry, fowl & chickens).  If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.

6.28.040 LIMITATION ON NUMBER OF RABBITS AND FOWLS KEPT.

It shall be unlawful for any person to keep more than ten rabbits, poultry or domestic fowls.

6.28.060 RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS ON THE KEEPING OF ANIMALS, RABBITS, FOWLS AND BIRDS IN CITY LIMITS.

It shall be unlawful for any person on any lot or parcel within the city to keep or maintain any animal, fowl or bird, wild or domestic, other than dogs, cats, canaries, or birds of the psittacine family (resembling parrots) within 50 feet of any residence or other structure used for habitation of human beings (including accessory living quarters, patios and swimming pools), or 100 feet from any school, hospital, rest home, sanitarium, church or similar institution, or within 75 feet of any dedicated street or private way in the city on which the property has frontage. The keeping of such animals, fowls and birds shall be confined to the rear yard of the premises as defined in Title 17 of this code.  Where the rear yard is insufficient to keep such rabbits, fowls, birds and animals, and only where the property has frontage on a dedicated street or private way in excess of 150 feet, such rabbits, fowls, birds or animals may be kept elsewhere on the lot subject to the approval of the Development Review Committee; provided, however, that no structure sheltering any such rabbit, fowl, bird or animal shall be visible from any street, alley or other public right-of-way.
