We are not sure when they were put into the current ordinance as an animal that is not allowed. The ordinance says, “No intensive agriculture- pigs or chickens.”
I never thought of 6 hens as intensive.
The city said, ” We do not go out looking for chickens. “
Many, many people have them in Edmond. In ALL parts of Edmond.
At this point the city attorney is waiting to hear back from the Dept. Of Agriculture to finalize the ordinance we have been working on. Once he hears from them, he can present it to the city council. Then a date will be set for a public hearing.
