    Mazomanie, WI passed an ordinance this week specifically allowing a household to have four chickens, no roosters, in village limits.

    Previous ordinances prohibited farm animals. Some people kept chickens as "pets".

    Nice. Can you give background? What instigated this? Community pressure?
