FARGO, N.D. (AP) - City commissioners in Fargo have cleared the way for homeowners to keep chickens on their property.

A new ordinance approved by commissioners clears up conflicting city codes regulating chicken coops and chickens. KFGO ( ) says the new local law includes specifications for size, construction and location of chicken coops, caps the number of chickens at four and bans roosters because of the noise.

A permit to keep chickens will cost $15 to $20. The ordinance becomes law after a second reading.
