ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Ann Arbor officials have approved a revised backyard chicken ordinance allowing residents to keep up to six hens in residential coops.

The city council voted Monday to ease restrictions on an existing ordinance that called for neighbor consent on five-year permits for up to four hens. The revised one-year permit doesn’t require neighbor consent, but instead allows neighbors to object to permit requests within 21 days of receiving an email notification.

The Ann Arbor News (https://bit.ly/1vpLdBT ) reports the city’s backyard chicken ordinance has been in place since 2008.
