Its No Yolk, Springfield MO Residents Can Now Raise Chickens!

A few feathers were ruffled recently when the Springfield MO City Council voted 5 - 4 to allow people to raise chickens inside the city limits. This debate has been going on for a few months as supporters scrambled for votes.Which Came First?

All jokes asChickens Allowed In Springfield MOide, the new ordinance prohibits roosters and allows no more than six hens. This will allow people to have fresh eggs and chicken meat if they desire. This is important to uphold property rights and food sustainability.

team Knowles: This issue is coming up in iowa a lot as well. Seems people want to be able to have fresh eggs and "organic" chicken on demand. I'm ok with going to the store myself!

I honestly don't know how I feel about this one.  While I understand the property owners rights and wanting to have organic, etc it just seems so strange to me within city limits.  Kinda agree with Matt here - I am okay going to the store for my eggs and chicken.  What's next  Cows and pigs?
