The Bitterroot valley has many subdivisions with covenants that say you cannot have chickens. Ideally You would want to find a parcel that has "No Covenants". And, the problem is when you are searching it is not usually advertised that it has "No Covenants". I would recommend having a Realtor to do a search for you. On the buying side it doesn't cost you anything additional to work with a Realtor as commissions are typically paid from the seller.
