Down on the Farm: Raising chickens

Email News Alerts

The City Commission in West Fargo is debating a proposal which would allow its residents to, of all things, keep chickens.

The proposal is severely limited. Only four chickens per yard. They have to be cooped up. And the neighbors have to approve.


Proponents say that allowing chickens will be eco-friendly and sustainable.

I am not sure that four chickens per household is going to save much of our rainforest, but it is a start.
