Chickens In Moline?

Updated:

With more and more people choosing to grow their own food, the Moline City Council takes up the issue of whether to allow people to raise chickens within city limits.

The proposal would let residents have as many as four, egg-laying hens.

The chickens would only be allowed in an enclosed area of a backyard.

Owners would also have to have a license.

An initial vote is expected during the city council meeting on Tuesday, June 18, 2013.
