Iowa City One Step Closer to Legalizing Chickens


Home to Roost was interviewed this week for this article on the quest to legalize chickens in Iowa City.

The Iowa City City Council voted 5-2 on the first consideration of an amendment to the city’s zoning code on establishing a permit process, which would allow residents to keep chickens at single-family detached residences. Councilors Michelle Payne and Terry Dickens voted against the measure.

Good luck, Iowa City chicken enthusiasts!
