The Verdict is in: Chickens are Pets in West Valley

SCORE ONE FOR CHICKENS... AND THE WEST VALLEY CITY RESIDENTS, WHO WANT THEM IN THEIR BACK YARDS.

THE WEST VALLEY CITY COUNCIL, TUESDAY NIGHT, APPROVED AN ORDINANCE, DEFINING CHICKENS AS 'HOUSEHOLD PETS.'

THAT DESIGNATION WILL NOW ALLOW RESIDENTS TO KEEP UP TO FOUR HENS, IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS.

ROOSTERS, HOWEVER, ARE STILL BANISHED TO AGRICULTURAL ZONES.

THE CITY COUNCIL WAS SHARPLY DIVIDED, PASSING THE CHICKEN ORDINANCE ON A 4-TO-3 VOTE.
