Hens in the house? Council to revisit chicken rules

Seymour City Council will take another look tonight at a proposal allowing residents to keep chickens on their property with some restrictions.

Instead of voting on an ordinance to ban the birds within city limits, council voted 6-1 at the last meeting to table the issue in order to study an amendment introduced by Councilman John Reinhart.

That amendment still would keep certain animals out of the city, including horses, cattle, swine, sheep, goats, llamas, geese, ducks, turkeys and peacocks. However, it would permit residents to have a flock of up to six hens, but no roosters.
