Chickens on Zoning Menu in Tampa

I ran across this article about backyard chickens in Tampa.  The city is making it easier to keep chickens in the city.  They were legal, but there were distinct restrictions as to where they could be kept.

The new rules will make it possible for nearly everyone with a backyard in Tampa to keep them.

There are plenty of people keeping chickens in Tampa and I don't know of any serious complaints or issues with them.  Indeed, there is quite a large group of feral chickens that live in Ybor City.  The residents have embraced them and they are quite popular.
