As previously reported here, Emily Cole, David Bissette and others have been urging the Wake Forest Board of Commissioners to relax the rules around keeping urban chickens.
So it's with great pride I can say that Em and co. have been successful in their efforts!
The new amendment allows for the keeping of up to ten chickens inside the town limits, excluding roosters without a permit.
David's got the post on their WFchickens blog with the details if you want them.
Congratulations to Em, David and everyone who helped the Board reach this outcome. Glad to see yet another example of smart rulings to allow the spread of urban chickens.
