Perrysburg City Council decides residents can only keep currently owned chickens

Perrysburg City Council has made its decision on new chicken ownership ordinances.

Current owners may keep and raise their hens within currently allowed zones. However, no new chickens will be allowed. Hens already in the city will need to be microchipped or banded.

"It wasn't the exact result we were hoping for but it's a step in the right direction," said Krista Kiessling, representing Chickens in the Burg. "Those of us who have hens don't have to get rid of them, which is wonderful and I'm really grateful to Council for that opportunity. We'll probably come back to the table at some point and hope that we'll get another chance."

The decision comes after roughly 420 days of discussion.
