Until now, chickens were permitted only in agricultural areas in Utah’s second-largest city. The ordinance permits each household to have a total of four pets; for example, a resident could have two dogs and two chickens, or one cat and three chickens. Roosters are still banned.

The decision came after the council heard comments from about 20 speakers, both pro and con.

The West Valley City Council is considering permitting backyard hens in residential areas, a proposal that divides neighbors between those who love fresh eggs and the feeling of rural living and those who hate the noise and smells from the suburban chickens.
