CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Casper residents will be able to keep chickens under a new law that limits the number of hens allowed on a residential property to six and sets size requirements for coops, among other stipulations.

KTWO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1Jiiu1Y) the rules were approved Tuesday despite opponents saying the birds bring noise and attract raccoons and skunks. Supporters of the law say those kinds of predators are already in the city.

Vice Mayor Daniel Sandoval said the law is not a slippery slope toward allowing goats and other livestock.
