City Chickens Bring Concerns

Proponents of urban chickens have provided many positives, but there are also concerns with keeping the animals.

Proponents of urban chickens have provided many positives, but there are also concerns with keeping the animals. An NBC report discusses what happens to chickens when new owners are not prepared for the responsibilities. Chicken owners told the Rapid City Journal about potential issues with noise and cost. However, another Journal article examines cities that have instituted policies permitting chickens, and found most of the concerns never materialized.

More information on urban chickens is available in the archive.
