Chickens Being Debated In Utica

Posted by wlpo on July 11, 2013

The debate of whether not to allow chickens in residential neighborhoods is popping up in another Illinois Valley community.

According to the NewsTribune, the Utica Village Board is debating changing its ordinance to allow chickens, specifically egg-laying hens in village neighborhoods.  Two women are asking to allow chickens in Utica for 4-H projects and fresh eggs.  The village board said it needed more time and didn’t act on the women’s request.

Just a few years ago the La Salle City Council had a hot debate over chickens in the city and eventually allowed them.
