The Food Producing Animals ordinance took effect June 24th and allows residents to raise 8 chickens or ducks and 2 dwarf goats after obtaining a one-time license.  See the details here.  Curious about the potential joys and pitfalls of having backyard livestock?  Grab your overalls and get started with these great resources.
