Ontop of that, you do have other rules that you could be required to follow in Ingham county, for example:

"Chickens must be kept in an enclosure so constructed or repaired as to keep the chickens confined on the owner’s property, and to prevent rats, mice, or other rodents from being harbored underneath, within, or within the walls of the enclosure" From the Ingham County website.
