Voorhees is excited to announce that we have modified our ordinance around backyard hens! The refreshed program was created in conjunction with the Camden County Chickens Organization and allows for 30 licenses, NO roosters allowed and this is no longer tied to lot size! To qualify, you must meet the requirements detailed in the ordinance and take a Chicken Care Class which outlines the proper handling of backyard hens.
