Chicken Debate Heats Up In Annapolis

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Chicken coops aren't just for the farm anymore.

Raising chickens in the city is a practice that's becoming more common nationwide.

Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen has proposed an ordinance to allow city residents to keep as many as five hens, but no roosters, on their properties.

"In Annapolis, and I think all across the country, there's a renewed push toward sustainability. And people want to know where their food comes from, and they want to support restaurants that source their food locally.

"And it also extends to our own backyards, where people are not only doing much more gardening themselves, but they want to do backyard chickens," Cohen says.
