Moorhead urban chickens hopes look bleak

Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - It doesn't look like backyard chickens will be coming to the city of Moorhead anytime soon.

Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - It doesn't look like backyard chickens will be coming to the city of Moorhead anytime soon.

The notion came before tonight's city council meeting but did not receive very much support.

Council member Luther Stueland has supported the idea from the get-go, but other members have been reluctant.

Some at tonight's meeting said they had heard mostly negative feedback when bringing the idea up to their constituents.

Luther Stueland, Moorhead City Council: “Seems ironic too me that something that was patriotic in a previous generation is now actually banned in the city of Moorhead.”

Nancy Otto, Moorhead City Council: “There were also some comments that if their neighbors had it, they'd roast some chickens. They were just not in favor of it.”

The council told backyard chicken supporters they should come back with a petition.
