In addition to zoning laws check with your local Conservation District. I know in King County, (The county Seattle is in), you can get waivers to allow more animals than zoning regulations allow, if you implement some basic environmental best practices (Which they will some times give you money to do!!). I live on 2.5 acres and by having the county come out evaluate my property and give me some pointers, I can now have twice as many animals, plus I got $1500 last year to rehab my pasture and turn outs. This year they're paying half of the cost to cement my manure area!
