FLOWER MOUND (CBSDFW.COM) – After nearly a year of pecking away at city rules regarding chickens, Flower Mound residents say they’re finally making some progress.

Changes to the chicken ordinance were up for discussion at both the animal services board and city council meetings this week.

Residents are pushing to loosen restrictions that only allow chickens to be kept on more than one acre of land. The effort has been helped by a growing interest in sustainable and organic food. Chicken owners say the birds also become pets.

The town liaison for the animal services board said she expects some changes to the ordinance will be ready for a meeting June 19, and be passed on to the town council for a vote.
