    I live in the Spokane Valley in Washington State. Last night the city council decided that we have have our backyard chickens! 1 hen per 2000 sq ft, no roosters, chicken housing must be 25 ft from neighboring property, and chickens need to be housed in a manner that they can not escape their yard. (basically a covered run)

    I am so happy my chickys are legal now!! woohoo!

    Oh, I'll have to tell my sister. She lives there and has been wanting chickens. Is your town on the "honor system" or will the rules be enforced?

    I was so happy when I heard the news! We've been able to have our chickens because we've been here for 30+ years, but we have friends who were putting up with a lot of crap trying to get theirs.... hopefully now that they've updated the ordinances, there will be less problems.
