NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa - The North Liberty City Council has taken the second step toward allowing homeowners to keep chickens in their backyards.

The council voted 3-2 Tuesday for the proposed ordinance, after making some changes to it.

The changes include the addition of a permit process and provisions that would require the chickens to be kept in backyards and have their wings clipped.

Permit holders would have to complete an approved class in raising chickens.

A third approval is required before the ordinance can go into effect.
