Can I keep chickens, bees, or other livestock?

Again, it depends on where you live, so it's best to check with your municipality or homeowners association before you start keeping livestock. In the city of Albuquerque, for example, you can keep up to 15 chickens per household in single family residential areas, and bee keeping is also permitted. Keeping hoofed animals, such as cows and pigs, depends on property size and zoning.
