PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh is about to make it a whole cheaper and easier to bring home birds and bees.

The Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1aOIU1j ) the city’s planning department is proposing to simplify the process for obtaining permits for chickens and other animals.

Under the change, owners of at least 2,000 square feet can pay $74 and receive a permit in one day that allows them to own up to five chickens or ducks, or two dehorned miniature goats, as well as two beehives.

Roosters aren’t allowed.

For each additional 1,000 square feet, residents can own an additional chicken or duck. no additional livestock are allowed for lots under 10,000 square feet.

The city planning commission unanimously approved the proposal in March. City council is expected to vote in the next few months.
