Backyard chickens update

By Gregg Hennigan

IOWA CITY – The Los Angles Times has a story today on backyard chickens that includes a couple of Iowa references.

The story mentions the Iowa City petition asking the city to allow people to keep up to five hens, no roosters, in residential areas. Organizers have said they plan to submit the petition to the City Council soon.

The city is collecting information on the topic for the council’s consideration in July, according to e-mails from city staff to people interested in the issue.
