Backyard chickens could soon be allowed in this metro-east city

If city council approves a new rule in the coming weeks, up to 20 lucky Edwardsville residents could become the proud owners of up to six hens each. Aldermen were expected to introduce an ordinance at Tuesday night’s council meeting that would allow a backyard chicken experiment – an experiment the city has previously denied.
