City addresses 'urban chickens' ordinance

Proposal would allow up to 5 hens in single-family zones

An ordinance in the early stages of review would allow as many as five chicken hens to be kept at homes within city limits in single-family zone districts. The ordinance has not been reviewed by the Steamboat Springs Planning Commission or City Council but probably will be this fall.
