Birds and poultry

Council does not specifically limit the numbers of birds and poultry a resident may keep, as long as the conditions in which the birds are kept meet general health and hygiene standards and the birds do not become a nuisance to neighbours, e.g. by excessive noise or smell.

To assist residents in properly maintaining their poultry, Council has a brochure entitled Poultry Brochure which can be downloaded below or can also be collected from the Administration Centre at 245 Sturt Road, Sturt. If you would like a copy mailed to you, please phone the Council on:

How do I lodge a complaint about a noisy bird?

Please be advised that all complaints must be initiated in writing by completing the Initial Noisy bird complaint form.

It is important to understand that this form is a legal document which must be witnessed by a Justice of the Peace and may be produced in Court as evidence. 

The complaint form can be submitted to the City of Marion via one of the following methods: 

Post: PO Box 21, Oaklands Park SA 5046
