Norman Council Approves Chickens (Nov 14, 2012)

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Norman City Council has approved a plan that allows residents to own up to four chickens in backyard coops.

The Norman Transcript reports that the plan does not allow roosters and does not allow the outdoor slaughter of chickens.

The chickens must be kept in a designated chicken coop and chicken run. The coop cannot be closer than five feet from property lines and no closer than 25 feet from the neighbor's house.

City attorney Jeff Bryant said neighborhood association covenants would supersede the ordinance if the covenant prohibits chickens.

Supporters of the proposal say they want the chickens as a food source.
