Council approves urban chickens

Richmond City Council this evening unanimously passed Ordinance 2013-47 which makes it legal to keep up to 4 female chickens, with a few restrictions (and a $60 annual permit).

Fan District Association President Roger Whitfield was one of two who spoke against the ordinance; there were at least 15 speakers in favor (including a number of Fan residents).

Charles Samuels says: This does not allow the slaughter of any animals. This does not allow chickens in the front yard.
