Selma Votes Against Residential Chickens

Posted January 14, 2004

— Live chickens are no longer allowed in Selma.

The town board voted unanimously Tuesday night to outlaw the birds in residential areas.

An old town ordinance allowed residents to have up to four live chickens on their property if they were kept in the yards, but complaints about chickens on the loose were on the rise.

The town manager said residents will likely have 30 to 60 days to make other arrangements for their chickens.
