SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- After months of debate the Spokane Valley City Council made changes to the city's chicken regulations.Those changes make it possible for people who live with in the city limits to own chickens on small residential pieces of property.
Craig Goodwin has four chickens in his backyard right next to his children's swing set. "They have names, yeah, Eagle, Chrysanthemum, Daisy and Honolulu," Goodwin, a self-proclaimed chicken person, said.
Goodwin says his four chickens produce two dozen eggs a week, but that is the only source of food they supply for his family of four. "I think the general rule is, if you name your chickens, you don't eat them," he said.KXLY.com More here.
