Kara BanksCity News

With chick season beginning, did you know that the City of Edgerton allows backyard chickens for most properties within City limits?

Families can have up to six hens on properties under one acre. No roosters are allowed under the urban chicken permit. A chicken coop, run, or chicken tractor is required in your backyard and the birds cannot run loose on your property.

Keeping of chickens is for use of the owner and is not for profit. Find out more and download an application here.
