    All cities have "disturbing the peace" ordinances. This pretty much rules out roosters, but hens are fairly quiet on their own. New York state doesn’t have any ordinances, and no specific anti-chicken laws turned up for Farmingdale. City Chicken is a great website for urban chicken growers.

    You’ll need a permit because the neighbors will turn you in to the town. The cackling will drive them nuts. Plus you’ll need a rooster nearby to stimulate egg production.

    You do NOT need a rooster, and hens make no noise. Your neighbors can complain, but if the requirements are met they have no case.

    Call the zoning department, or the health department. Where I live, a city of about 75K, they are legal, but the health department will inspect for a possible rat problem
