    So after a community survey, the city here is finally recommending chickens to the City Council. This is after they turned it down, one person saying something along the lines of "My neighbors had chickens when I was a kid, and they smelled awful", which was her reason for a no vote. The City's recommendations sound pretty good minus the need to register and pay a fee, and the idea of keeping them penned at all times. It's a positive step though!
