It’s shocking that there is so much legislation across the United States related to chickens and other live stock. Recentlya bill was introduced by Senator David Farnsworth from  Mesa, Arizona, according to the Arizona Capitol Times.

According to the bill, SB1151, “Municipalities are prohibited from adopting a zoning ordinance that prohibits a resident of a single-family detached residence from keeping fowl in the backyard of the property.”

The legislation would allow cities to restrict the number of chickens and the allowance of rosters or not.

According to the Arizona Capitol Times the law would allow for cities “to outlaw roosters, except for ones that no longer crow.”
