Revised Willmar, Minn.,ordinance prohibits chickens in residential areas

Email

WILLMAR -- Nick Davis grew up raising 100 to 150 chickens on a farm north of Willmar and he felt the City Council would be missing out on an opportunity if a revised ordinance prohibiting backyard chickens in certain residential areas was approved.

Opposition to the ordinance was also expressed in a letter by Amy Haugen who wrote that she and many others would be disappointed and disheartened if the council did not allow raising backyard hens.
