It looks like Knoxville has followed Nashville and now allows backyard chickens.
Maybe it is about time?
Knoxville City Council members gave preliminary approval Tuesday night to urban chickens, goats to eat kudzu, and a new Kroger store in West Knoxville.They also allowed goats....dare I dream or is the council able to look outside of the box?
Finally, they voted to change a city ordinance to allow residents to keep chickens within the city limits. But council members cut the number of hens that would be allowed from 12 to 6.
