Plano residents may soon be allowed to own their own chickens.
Later this month, the Plano City Council will vote on changing the city ordinance regarding backyard chickens.
A local group, known as "Plano Hens", has been advocating for the change in the ordinance, and has worked with the city to come up with both a plan and the rules.
They say that many residents want to build their own chicken coop, and raise their own chickens so that they can have fresh eggs.
If the ordinance passes, residents could only own hens. Roosters would still be prohibited.
