A proposal the town of Port Royal is considering is literally for the birds.
The Beaufort Gazette reports http://bit.ly/pRsOxo the town is considering an ordinance that would allow residents to keep up to six chickens on residential property.
Chickens currently are allowed only on property zoned agricultural.
Mayor Sam Murray says he had no idea so many people in the community were interested in raising the birds.
Under the proposal, the chickens would have to be kept in backyards in a clean, sanitary pen or structure at least 40 feet from the home of neighbors.
