Following complaints, two Rapid City chicken owners will have to get rid of their flocks. The Rapid City Journal reported that two chicken owners were told to remove the animals after complaints were made. Keeping chickens and livestock in the city is prohibited by law.

In 2011, an ordinance permitting chickens in Rapid City failed to pass the City Council. Rapid City Hens has been trying to bring another ordinance to the City Council this year without success. Read more on the issue in our archive.
