  1. Are we allowed to own chickens in highlands county outside of city limits? I live in Sebring, but in county jurisdiction at the end of scenic highway just before the new panther parkway.

    • You would need to contact Linda Conrad, the Highlands County Zoning Supervisor (863)-402-6638 for more information on locations in the county.
