Ind. Gov't. - "South Bend Common Council to consider chicken bill"

Continuing the ILB's long list of "chicken underground" entries, FOX28's Matt Gard reported this morning:

The South Bend Common Council will be debating on a unique issue at their meeting on Wednesday night. The Zoning & Annexation and Health & Public Safety commitees will try and decide whether people should be allowed to keep chickens in their backyards.

The practice is actually become more common in urban areas. Some people argue that keeping chickens and producing their own eggs and poultry is a cheaper alternative to buying it from the store. Some even argue that eggs from backyard chickens taste better.

ILB: Not really so "unique" - see this Nov. 30, 2010 ILB entry quoting the South Bend Tribune:
Cities such as Bloomington, Indianapolis and Evansville allow backyard chickens, and some residents are hoping South Bend will be added to the list.
